Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I want to set the windows key to be another modifier like control or alt. Do you have any idea how to do this. I do not use the windows key at all.
I have Xemacs installed in both Windows and Linux. Linux has the windows key mapped as another modifier: the Super key. So many Linux users assign user-written macros in Xemacs to be invoked by keypresses like Super-v or Super-n, or Super-Control-a. This leaves all Xemacs built in commands working out of the box, but gives you a large area to map your own macros and lisp code to. Works great, but when you want to use something similar in Windows XP, Windows preempts the Windows key.
How can I re-define the Windows key to be a modifier like Alt?
Is there a list of modifier keys in Windows?
I would really like to have both the LWin key and the right hand equivelent key (document key?) both mapped to be the same, new, modifier key.
Can you point me in the right direction?
sir, i prepared a game. but i want to disable some of the keys in the keyboard. plz suggest me. and how to enable the keys also....
plz tell me the answer as early as possible
Some notes --
KeyTweak does global remapping, meaning that the changes you make with it will apply to all users, keyboards, etc. You cannot make two profiles to switch between (such as between the laptop keyboard and a normal keyboard hooked to a docking station)
Keyboard layout manager can create multiple keyboard profiles that you can switch between, but it doesn't let you change the functions of the windows key, or the "right click" key, or home/page up/down/end keys. It only lets you control the letters and numbers.
I still haven't found a way to remap my windows key and page up/down home/end buttons, for one of my keyboards, and still be able to switch between layouts.
Better luck to everyone else!
