Skyrim + Media Keys

Having been playing a lot of Skyrim again lately, I kept getting frustrated at how once you load Skyrim, none of the media keys on my keyboard seemed to work.

Main nuisances were not being able to mute or change volumes unless you alt-tab, and we all know how alt-tab friendly that game is.

Some Googling later I came across a solution, and it actually works!

Just install Microsoft's Intellitype Pro software, and everything start working like magic! Doesn't need to be a Microsoft keyboard. I got a Logitech G510, and still worked like a charm.

Didn't know that, but doesn't it install the windows keyboard drivers too?

I guess .. but if you don't have any Microsoft keyboards, it doesn't affect anything.
