Do you have a keyboard that certain keys don't work well Do you often use certain keys continually but their positions on your keyboard are not handy for you. With Keytweak we can disable certain keys on our keyboard, or make them act like other keys as we want optionally. Keytweak allows us remap keyboard keys, so we can make our broken-down keyboard alive or improve our work efficiency. Well, come on with me and see what a supernatural utility it is!
KeyTweak is a tool lets us redistribute (or more technically, remap) our keyboard that is, assign new values and new functions to keys. KeyTweak makes use of Microsoft Scancode Map registry key to remap our keyboard. KeyTweak enables us to customize our keyboard and assign different functionality to selected keys. The software is easy-to-use and offers a virtual keyboard display that we can use to select the key, and then simply assign a new action for it by selecting it from a drop menu. KeyTweak also supports remapping for a variety of specialty keys found on some keyboards (e.g. email, power off, homepage etc.). All changes can be easily undone if needed. The license of this windows utility software is freeware, we can free download and free use this Windows utility software.
The key functions and benefits of Keytweak include:
1. First of all, KeyTweak is a tool quite simple to use. It lets us burn patterns keyboard that generate power for reuse later, or even undo all changes to return to the initial configuration of the keyboard. KeyTweak is a simple utility that allows us of Windows NT, 2000 or XP to remap our keyboard inputs.
2. On the other hand KeyTweak is powerful enough for the power user. Nothing equals efficiency like having our keyboard keys mapped in just the right way for our particular needs. Say, for example, we would rather the Caps Lock key function as the Delete key (it would mean, in many instances, the Delete key would be within reach of the pinky without moving our hands), with KeyTweak this is possible. Or say we have taken our keyboard apart (for whatever reason) and cannot remember what each key does (it could happen). With KeyTweak we can quickly find out what key does what with the click of a button.
3. KeyTweak provides a friendly and intuitive interface for us. The main window consists of a menu bar, a Remapping section, Keyboard Control section, Specialty Buttons section, Pending Changes section, and buttons to toggle full and half teaching modes. This means we can manage our keyboard in one place.
4. Following are the brief descriptions of each section:
5. Remapping: The remapping section includes a listing of currently remapped keys, a virtual keyboard, and buttons to restore defaults and Raw Map display. Keyboard Control: The keyboard control is where we will select the new remapping for a chosen key. This is done via a drop-down list and a Remap button. Specialty Buttons: This section allows us to remap any specialty buttons that are available on our keyboard. Pending Changes: This shows any changes that will take affect upon next reboot. Half/Full Teaching Mode Buttons: By toggling either of these buttons we will be switched to its respective mode of teaching.
6. KeyTweak features two modes for us. Full teach mode and Half teach mode. The full teach mode is really just another method of achieving the same goal. When we click the Full Teach mode, a new window will open. This new window allows us to select a key for one slot (#1) and a second key for another slot (#2) and then remap #1 to #2. To be honest I am not quite sure why the half teach mode is necessary, because this pretty much re-creates what is already on the screen. We select a key, choose where the key is to be remapped to from a drop-down list, and then click the Remap button. To me that is too similar to the default method of remapping in the main window to be necessary.
Other useful functions include: Reset all remapping with one click; Warns user if key remapping may lead to dangerous configuration and much more!
