Tag Archives: AutoHotKey


One of the most commonly asked questions about SharpKeys is “can I remap a shift-key to another key” – something that wants to move only a modified part of a key… like leave 5 where it is but remap %. Since SharpKeys simply exposes the built-in remapping technology of Windows, and Windows only remaps whole keys, this is something that is impossible with SharpKeys.

However, DownloadSquad has found AutoHotKey. This remaps keys on an application by application basis and does a whole lotta stuff… it’s also open source and free, and according to DownloadSquad, rather Geek-centric.

Might be an alternative if whole key remapping doesn’t help ya out.
