  • changing keyboard key definitions

    I recently bought a new keyboard (Microsoft model RT 2300) w/o looking too closely at the key layout. Now it turns out they have made a feww changes to the standard key layout in particular to the six-some above the arrow keys. Is there any way to change key definitions to be more convenient for me.
    Thanks.

    Hmmmm... Odd one.
    You can try one of those keys remappers:

    - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,19645,00.asp

    Just two samples, maybe more out there. Didn't used any of them, and if you saw right, they are both free.
    Hope this helped. Good luck.

      Been having a little look at this and it doesn't seem to be that much different to a normal keyboard. The insert key and the delete key have been moved to above the home and page up.

      Can't understand what you are trying to achieve to be honest.

        If you are referring to the physical layout of the keys then remapping them wont exactly move them...

            I would like to have the end key in place of insert, and insert where the end key is now. This mainly has to do with comfort when using these keys particularly when in combination with ctrl. Insert, PU and PD I hardly ever use while Home, end and Delete frequently.

            it is not the end of the world, and I suppose I will get used to the layout, but I find myself pushing the wrong key periodically.

              Try working in China where the most important key a sys admin uses "\" is now above the enter key! It's gonna take me 6 weeks to get used to it then another 6weeks to get back to having "\" in the bottom left hand corner when I'm back in the UK. Dont even get me started on @ " and the UK pound sign (Exactly - I can't even find the fecking thing!!!!).

                You're in China for six weeks? Geee, I hope you like rice, man
                Good luck! BTW, couldn't you take a keyboard with you? I received on my last birthday one of those plastic keyboards that you can fold as you like. Goes excellent in a suitcase...
