The USB Millennium Keyboard is a full featured input device which provides the computer user with extended functionality for better computing experience. Unlike conventional keyboard devices this input device along with its corresponding device driver allows for quick access to functions with its programmable keys. These specially designed keys allows the computer user to immediately execute actions or launch software applications with a press of a key. This is sometimes referred to as a shortcut action key and minimizes the need to navigate the mouse and perform clicks. The USB Millennium Keyboard also features special keys which are dedicated to the operation of the attached optical media drive on the host computer system. This makes it possible to immediately access the contents like in the case of audio discs the computer user may playback the contents directly from the keyboard interface instead of the optical drive or the multimedia program.

Another added feature provided by the USB Millennium Keyboard is that it incorporates into its design an additional Universal Serial Bus interface port. This gives the computer user the flexibility of plugging removable devices directly onto the keyboard instead of accessing the Universal Serial Bus interface port on the Central Processing Unit. These somewhat complex functionalities may only be enabled if the correct device driver is installed into the host computer system. This device driver implements the necessary communication layer infrastructure that makes it possible for the computer user to access other hardware and software components directly from the special keys. The device driver is likewise partially responsible for remembering the actions assigned by the computer user to the programmable keys. Among the basic functions of the device driver of the USB Millennium Keyboard is that it defines to the host operating system platform the keyboard layout file that can be associated with the supported hardware component. This will help to minimize the occurrence of dead keys. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and USB Millennium Keyboard errors before installing any driver updates.
