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.

what about 'option' and 'fn' and 'control' key mappings? – user27449 Jun 21 '10 at 2:37
<kbd>Option</kbd> is the same as <kbd>Alt</kbd>, and <kbd>Control</kbd> is the same. <kbd>Fn</kbd> is often keyboard-specific, and may or may not have an equivalent. – Darth Android Jun 21 '10 at 2:54

You need to download the correct drivers (IntelliType) from the Microsoft homepage! BTW the keyboard with foot attached fits perfectly over my Macbook 13" :)
