Default Remap Keyboard

Remap Keyboard

If you look at your computerís keyboard you see keys that you use a lot, keys that you use seldom and keys that you have not used once in your life. Unless pressing the key accidentally would count. Keys that fall in the last category are the Shift-Lock key and probably keys like Sleep, Scroll Lock or End. It is safe to say that many users do not even have a clue about the function of these keys.
Remapping keys on the computer keyboard describes the process of changing the behavior of a key permanently. Sharp Keys is a light weight portable software that writes the remapped keys to the Windows Registry which essentially means that the changes are active after the next reboot or log out.
Sharp Keys supports 104 keys that can be remapped on the computer keyboard. This includes all the lesser used keys like the ones mentioned above but also all general keys like the letters and digits. The software was able to identify several of the multimedia keys on a Logitech keyboard as well.

The main advantage of Sharp Keys over similar software programs is that Sharp Key uses the native Windows functionality to remap the keys. This means that the software does not have to be running in the background after the changes have been made.
Remapped keys on the keyboard can be deleted all the time which will write the original information to the Windows Registry again.
