I came across a nice utility for changing keyboard keys in Windows. It’s called Sharpkeys. Basically, you open the program, select which keyboard key you want to change (such as Left Alt), and choose what key you want it to actually be (such as Left CTRL). Here’s the website: SharpKeys 3.0
There are two version’s, the normal MSI (a normal setup installer file) and a .zip so you can run it right away without the need to install anything.
little bit of info from the site:
SharpKeys is a Registry hack that is used to make certain keys on a keyboard act like other keys. For example, if you accidentally hit Caps Lock often, you could use this utility to map Caps Lock to a Shift key or even turn it off completely. This official release includes support for up to 104 mappings, an extensive list of available keys, and a “Type Key” option to help when managing mappings. As it relies on internal support within Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, or Windows 7, you must be running one of these OS’s for this Registry hack to work.
Did you ever wondered how to get those weird funny looking symbols?
Well this is how you use the Windows Alt Key Codes.
ALT Codes are special characters such as ☺♫♪. Because your keyboard doesn’t have all the keys it needs, you use the ALT key and your number pad.
Important: Don’t use the numbers on the top of your keyboard (those above your letters), this only works with keypad on the right of your keyboard, and make sure “NUM LOCK” is on else the keys will be disabled and will NOT work.
