    My keyboards for the past several years are Logitech and I like their products. However, one of the keyboard "mapping" shortcomings of my current model is that it will let you turn off a specific key but (as far as I can see) it won't let you map a key to another function on the keyboard.

    I have had a problem with the CAPS LOCK KEY for a long time that I hit it by mistake when I'm reaching for the tab key. So, I wanted to map the caps lock key to the same function as the tab key. This program, a freebie, lets me do that and it requires no installation and is very easy to use: MapKeyboard - Freeware keyboard remapper. See:

    Al,

    In Control Panel | Accessability Options you can set the keyboard Toggle Key to beep at you every time you hit the Caps Lock Key. I don't think you can change the beep, but there is a different one for ON and OFF.

    I have found this to be invaluable with these modern black keyboards with no Caps Lock light on them.

    Hi, I use AutoHotKey as it allows me to program keys to do different things depending upon the current active window. The downside is that keys need to be remapped manually using a script.
