You can create a keyboard macro or hotkey which is basically a short script that allows you to assign a specific function of your choosing to any key pn your board.
HERE is a link to a tutorial on how to do it:


What do you mean by "2x"?

If you mean you want to multiply a value by 2, you need to work that out with the program you're entering the data into.

If you mean you want it to enter the next keystroke twice... well, 2x followed by 0 is no faster than 00, perhaps slower. This could _possibly_ be done by inserting a microcontroller between the keyboard and PC, but not easily.

What are you actually trying to accomplish?

Thank you very much it works perfectly.
it was like Greek but i could achieve in what I wanted

thanks you both for answer me.

well what I want to do is the following:
I have a USB numerical keyboard and I'm not using it at all. I want to give it use. I like to play games on-line in one of those games I need to press a key twice and I wanted to know if I could customizeone a key from this numerical keyboard to do this

Is it possible?

or if even simpler - if its in calc in most programs, enter number, *2 enter enter enter....multiplies each time you hit enter...
