By default, holding down the Home key will bring up the quick list to set profile, etc. But if you want that key to do launch a program, just take a shortcut of an app you want to launch, copy & rename it to Long_Home (the .lnk extension is hidden) and *copy it to the windows folder*.

I have mine mapped to a mortscript that runs Oxios CloseApps (http://www.oxios.com/memory/) and then close the resulting window for a quick way to tell all apps to close and free up some memory / cpu.

Some of the info came from here:

You can probably remap some other keys as well, such as giving the camera button dual functions.

Have it run vjdevicelock.exe (http://www.vijay555....es:VJDeviceLock).
The .cab file is most likely locked for installation of PocketPC. If it is, extract the .exe with this program: http://www.codeppc.c...inf/msceinf.htm or use the attached file.
