Macs used to have a key on the keyboard that would eject the CD or DVD. Maybe they still do.

I don't know of one in Windows, but there's software that allows you to assign a keyboard shortcut

This procedure might also work

The Door Control utility that Jenny lined to is the same one I found.

Jenny100 and Draclvr, When you press the eject button on my tower, the disc will not come out. I have to go to the drive and eject the disc. I will try this link, that would sure simplify ejecting the disc.

Not sure what you mean here... the eject button on your tower should be ON the disc drive. What do you mean by "have to go to the drive to eject the disc?" The problem may be with your disc drive and a hotkey may not help.
