A tool for mapping special buttons on your laptop, enabling you to assign new functions to multimedia buttons, as well as the 'FN' key

editor's review




Acer LaunchManager provides Acer product owners with a simple, yet useful and easy to configure utility that servers one purpose, namely to assist you in mapping special buttons on your keyboard to certain functions.

Configure any button on your Acer machine

The so-called ‘special’ buttons are those that are not included in a standard keyboard, such as multimedia keys or the ‘FN’ key on laptops and notebooks. What Acer LaunchManager actually does is customize the functions assigned to each key and thus create your own, personal keyboard configuration.

Quick and easy configuration process

The main window of the application enables you to view the button configuration and proceed to changing the functionality of each key using the available options included in the drop-down menus.

The application also allows you to change the functions assigned to the ‘FN’ key, as it controls all the hot key combinations. Therefore, if you experience problems with getting key combinations to work properly, you should re-install Acer LaunchManager on your device.

Visual and acoustic notifications added

One advantage that Acer LaunchManager brings is the user feedback to changes in volume, screen brightness levels and the Wi-Fi or the Bluetooth connection status.

Therefore, if you modify the audio volume or activate / disable the wireless connection of your laptop, you get a pop-up notification that displays the new changes. If this application is not working, the buttons are still usable, but no visual notification is displayed.

A few last words

To sum up, Acer LaunchManager provides users of Acer labeled laptops or notebooks with a handy tool that enables them to control and configure the keyboard mapping. It can also prove useful in case one or more key combinations do not work as they should.
