    He may have custom mapped it. It's not difficult. There's a section on mapping in the the manual if you'd care to read it. And there's probably some tutes on Youtube as well. I can't give you the specific mappings at the moment because I haven't got Traktor in front of me and it would require explaining some concepts that will be better stated in the manual/Youtube

    On mine it is shift+arrow key (but I can't remember if it is the same on the default mapping).

    Don't you have a Kontrol S2? Those functions are present on the controller.

    That's exactly how I do it. mapped the left to load deck a and right to load deck B. And somehow when I'm drunk i reverse them in my head LOL

    I also use shift+left and shift+right to copy left and right to the other deck
