Editors' Review

+

This free application lets you customize your keyboard layout settings, though its lack of hot key functions is disappointing.

MapKeyboard's interface resembles the standard keyboard image that most users will be able to easily utilize, even without a help guide. The program allows you to change the output of a key through a pull-down menu of output keys. You also can create multiple layouts that will suit your needs. In addition, the program allows you to quickly revert to the original keyboard layout with its one-click reset keyboard feature, though we still prefer the hot key function that this program unfortunately lacks.

Regardless, customization aficionados will surely find this freeware handy and easy to use in personalizing their keyboards.

"Save As/Open and Toggle feature needed"

January 11, 2015

2015-01-11 22:24:46

 |  Version: MapKeyboard 1.5

Pros

Does what it says but...

Cons

Needs the ability to quickly toggle layout changes and save multiple profiles.

Summary

You have two options: All or Nothing. I wanted the ability to remap keys for a game that lacked the feature (hate WASD!). Hoped this program could run in the background and allow me to toggle the customized map on demand. You can easily remap but resetting back to default requires you to setup the remap again which for me was 12 keys. Plus changing keys to and fro requires a reboot. Not something I want to do every time I launch the game.

Great for folks who want to keep a remapped layout as default. Not great for frequent temporary remaps.

Pros

None I can see

Cons

Some of my shifted keys were wrongly assigned. This software did not show any way to re-map those keys. During downloading AVG virus checker had two issues to deal with.

Summary

FIND DIFFERENT SOFTWARE.
