I had read a way to open the drawer from the keyboard with a key combination but forget what it was.  I apparently didn't save it, trusting my memory.  What a joke!  Does anyone know the secret for "Open Sesame"?

Are you using some kind of macro program?  Macro Magic or the like?

No, it was just one of those tips you read.  It seems it was a Winkey plus something else.  I thought it was kind of neat to be able to open and close the drawer from the keyboard.  I've tried every combination I can think of.  Not really that important, just trying to remember how I did it before.

I've seen this as a utility that comes packaged with the drive,but not as a Win9X function.

I have an ergonomic keyboard with the windows function keys.  I had the combination and used it on this keyboard but then lost it.

I believe I was thinking of the following:  In My Computer right click on your CD drive letter and select "eject".  I put it on my desktop for easy access.
