SharpKeys 3.6

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, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 you must be running one of these OS’s for this Registry hack to work.

With the move to version 3.6, I’ve recompiled the most recent code that has been posted to the GitHub project. It includes some bug fixes and a couple of text changes; I encourage anyone interested in working on the code to visit for more project changes.

  1. Hi
    I tried to install Sharpkeys but Windows Smartscreen blocked it. Generally I have a problem with national characters on my keyboard.
    I am prom Poland and we use Polish Programmers default windows layout. In this layout when the combination of alt gr + letter is used – we get our national characters.
    Suddenly yesterday this stopped to work for for letters a and s – but still works for other letters. Also it does not look like hot key assigment as nothing happens after using this combination out of applications.

    Nothing new was installed on the device prior to this problem. Mstf t update 1709 is not installed.

    Will your sharpkeys help to locate the problem?



    Can your

    1. Not much I can do for Smartscreen – I haven’t had that happen on Edge so I’m not sure what’s going on. That said, SharpKeys won’t be able to help with anything that involves a modifier key like Alt, AltGr, or Ctrl – it only remaps whole keys. You might want to investigate AutoHotKeys or some other active keyboard mappers. Or you might want to confirm that the correct keyboard layout was selected after you updated Windows.
