    Remap single key of bluetooth keyboard


    Is there any way to remap a single key on a bluetooth keyboard? It is a key that opens up a new instance of my internet browser (see link). Instead I would like it to take a screenshot of my screen.

  2. Keyboard Remap and Macro

    (Windows 10 Pro)
    I need a recommendation for software that will ...
    1. allow me to remap a few keys on my keyboard
    2. one of them is the Windows Key
    3. allow me to create keyboard macros
    I keep hearing about sharpkeys but doesn't sound like it can create macros. I am hoping I can get the job done with a single program.
    Any suggestions? Thx, Henry Fiddler

  3. Remapping keyboard keys

    thanks for this but the first post is to "assign a macro or program to a key" which is not what i want to do.

    Im not sure why i would need to run the troubleshooter because there is nothing wrong with the keyboard i just want to remap the keys.

    i am unsure also why you are referring me to update with the media creation tool? these seem completely unrelated to my problem....

    note: i just tried selecting the 'send key combinations' on my remote desktop client and this allowed the remapping software to recognise the CMD key as the left windows key so i thought i was in luck. i remapped it in the software to the left CRTL key and
    restarted but it doesnt seem to have done anything at all....frustrating.

    Remap single key of bluetooth keyboard

    How to remap combinations of keys including the windows key?

    To avoid the XY problem, I'll explain my problem and then the problem I have with my attempted solutions:

    Problem

    I have a windows laptop (hp elitebook), and I use my wireless bluetooth mac keyboard with it. Because the keyboard shortcuts do not translate well from windows to Mac, I want to remap them. I can either 1) remap the keys on the windows machine, such that the bluetooth mapping is what I desire, or 2) remap the keys on the bluetooth wireless keyboard.

    I chose 1) because I want to be able to use my bluetooth wireless keyboard with other machines.

    Attempted Solution

    Let's say, for example I want to map the cntrl+W to Windows key+W. I can't just map Cntrl to Windows key, because I need the cntrl key for other things. I want to map the combination to another combination.

    I tried this SharpKeys , but it only maps single keys to single keys.
    I tried Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator, which looked promising, but in the layout interface, there is no windows key (strange, since it came from Microsoft).
    I even tried editting the .klc file, which is what this guy suggested, but I found it very difficult to edit the .klc files for my purpose. The klc files can be downloaded using the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator, and the codes for the keys can be found here. But , even still I do not know how to edit it to allow combations of keys, again it seems like it is only good for one to one.

    Any suggestions for the Problem or the Attempted Solution? Thank you.
