Do you have a keyboard that certain keys do not work well? Do you often use certain keys continually but their positions on your keyboard are not handy for you. With SharpKeys we can disable certain keys on our keyboard, or make them act like other keys as we want optionally.

For example, if we accidentally hit Caps Lock often, we 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, or Windows Vista we must be running one of these OS for this Registry hack to work.

We will no longer have to explicitly run SharpKeys as an Administrator as we will automatically be prompted to do this whenever we run SharpKeys. For what it is worth, this requirement is not SharpKeys fault: of the registry keys that SharpKeys needs for itself are stored in a part of the registiry that we will automatically have access to... it is the registry editing that SharpKeys performs for Windows that requires elevated access to work with. This download is not required for users that are not running Windows Vista; nothing else has changed in this release.
