recommendation for remap software via mouser:
Fannon -- thanks for the tip about using SharpKeys to reassign Capslock; i've added a tip about that in the FARR help file for people who want to use CapsLock -- it seems like a good choice especially for laptop users.
was looking at it lately - looks like it will change Ctrl key
I think it does work - I just set it to disable control-right and it apparently does. It lets the original key through so for example I gave it Control-W (the worst of the batch, it kills whole windows) and out comes a small-w, but that's fine. (Because with my new widget which I am affectionately calling Turbo Backspace) I can just retype it.
Then I just mashed a bunch of other control keys. Glorious amounts of nothing occurred.
The only problem is that it seems to need to reboot which takes 5 minutes on my machine for MS Sec. Essentials to quit hogging the CPU and settle back into its corner. But otherwise all is well!
(Proceeds to break Mach 1 with the number of errors he can correct now. I'm a pest, but I give praise where it's due!)
