The DellTouch Programmable Hot Keys are used with the DellTouch application. To aid users in quickly programming every single hot key to preconfigured states, Dell provided users with 3 registry files capable of setting all hot keys to their factory default settings. If a user’s operating system is Windows NT or Windows 2000, the users should log on to a Standard User of Administrator account in Windows 2000 and as Power User for Windows NT to modify the settings of the hot keys. Generally, there are 3 settings already preconfigured for the DellTouch Programmable Hot Keys which includes Blank, Dimension and Icons. The Blank setting can erase every programming for hot keys, which leaves the keys un-configured. This setting is used by default in Dell Latitude and Inspiron portable PCs. This setting is useful in the event that users want to customize their hot keys and start from scratch.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The Dimension setting is capable of setting the default factory settings for systems running on the Dell Dimension. On the other hand, the Icons setting can set every programming to match the icons of the hot keys on a keyboard that is Dell Enhanced. This is likewise the default factory setting for the Dell Precision Workstation systems as well as the Dell OptiPlex systems. In computing terms, a hot key, also called a keyboard shortcut is a fixed set of key(s) that can invoke an OS or software operation once triggered by users. Hot keys are generally alternate options to invoke commands that would only be accessible via a command console, users interface, pointing device or a menu. They mainly speed up normal operations by decreasing the input sequences to a small amount of keystrokes. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and DellTouch Programmable Hot Keys errors before installing any driver updates.
