Plain but effective

Take control of keyboard functions with Keyboard Remapper.

Keyboard Remapper is a tool that lets you change your keyboard's functions. Despite a trial limitation, we were able to come away with a clear picture of how it performs.

The user interface is plain and straightforward. There, you can enable and disable the program. The five buttons on the left side of the window let you add, edit, and delete key combinations, as well as hide the window and terminate the program. A large window displays the new key combinations. After clicking the Add button, we were given two options for creating a key combination: typing the keys or selecting them with the mouse. Either way, we were able to quickly make our key selections. The program gives you the option of disabling another key combination, blocking a key, launching a URL, and typing specific text each time you use the new key combo. Each option worked flawlessly for us. A Help file isn't included, but the publisher offers tips on the Web site for using the program.

A trial limitation prevents you from adding more than two key combinations, but we were able to delete combos and add more just to see if the program worked as promised, which it did. We recommend this program for those looking to take some control over their keyboard's functions.
