Ever find that your Task Bar on your PC has been filled up with Client access sessions as well as whatever else you may have opened? I usually have 8 or 9 items opened in my task bar. What becomes a pain is trying to switch between my AS/400 sessions using my mouse or Alt Tab. Client Access keyboard mapping has saved me the pain of this. I have eight sessions mapped to my keyboard and can switch between them in an instant. Setting it up is quite easy. With Client Access open click on the Map button. Click on 1 on the keyboard and in the "Function" area of the "Select Key Action" scroll down until you come to "Jump to Session A". Select it and click on the ALT arrow on the right. Continue this with number 2 and "Jump to session B", etc... This will allow you to jump between sessions using Alt 1, Alt 2, Alt 3, and so on, for session 1, 2 or 3. I have found it much faster and less confusing to use myself.
