I have a microsoft natural keyboard with my macbookpro laptop.
Short cut keys don't seem be working, like when I am using chrome I can usually do:
control-T to open a new tab (or command-T on the laptop).
DO I have to configure this somewhere?
Did you try Windows+T? The Windows key on most keyboards translates to the Command key on macs.
You need to download the correct drivers (IntelliType) from the Microsoft homepage! BTW the keyboard with foot attached fits perfectly over my Macbook 13" :)
