I have a Razer Naga gaming mouse. The mouse has a number grid on the side that acts like a numpad. I know this can be remapped, but I would like it to use the Numpad keys. In Windows, when you hit Shift + Numpad 8 it actually sends the up arrow key to the application/game. Is it possible to get Windows to actually sent a Shift + Numpad 8 key to the application/game instead? I would of course like to do this for the other NumPad keys as well.

Thanks for the help!

I just ended up remapping those side buttons to letters and punctuation that is not being used by the game. If anyone has any ways to actually achieve what I was originally going after, that would be cool, but I don't know if there is a good way to do it. – cyphun Apr 23 '12 at 4:08

A quick search reveals several such questions about this setup and the functionality you request for WoW and other MMOs. The only consistent solution that seems prevalent and that works for most it seems is the use of AutoHotkey. Here's a WoW related thread of suggested setup.

After trying this option, I couldn't get it to work. The buttons would keybind correctly, but would also trigger a Numlock On/Off keypress as well. Also even though the keybind did work correctly, it would never actually trigger the button in game. Not sure why. – cyphun Apr 23 '12 at 4:07
