Use Apple Keyboard Under Windows 7 Without Losing Mac Functionality

Apple Wireless Keyboard is a small script developed with AutoHotkey that allows users to use Apple Keyboard (both wired and wireless) under Windows 7 without losing the Mac functionality. It brings those useful Mac shortcuts that we use everyday, such as, Printscreen, Task Manager, iTunes Control, System Volume Control, Eject Button, and so on.

Using this helper application along with Magic Mouse driver will allow you to enjoy using Mac Keyboard and Mouse (Magic Mouse) under Windows 7 without any issues.

The full list of supported functions are:

  • F3: Printscreen
  • F4: Task Manager
  • F7-F9: iTunes Control
  • F10-F12: System volume Control
  • Eject button toggles Fkeys/Functions
  • Fn + F key triggers function (useful when in F keys mode)
  • Fn + Backspace = Del

All functions were successfully tested on Windows 7 x86 system using an Apple keyboard. The helper app sits in the system tray and can be stopped anytime. The developer expects to add more features in future builds.
