I’m all about controlling every aspect of my environment Today’s tool is from randyrants.com. SharpKeys is a keyboard remapper that writes the necessary registry keys to let you re-map any key on your keyboard.
If, for example, you always hit the windows key when playing a fullscreen game that causes it to minimize and makes you lose the final round (or race, or.. anything losable), you can re-map this key to be, for example, another shift key.
It officially supports Win2000, XP and, even if not “officially” supported, it works well on Windows Vista.
If you don’t want to search in the keys list for that “mute” button on your keyboard to change it to something else, you can use the “Type Key” feature that will select that key automatically.
