Mac users may want the ability to alter their keyboard settings to change keys, as well as other options. KeyRamp4MacBook for Mac permits a number of settings and key changes that could be useful for a small number of users.

KeyRemap4MacBook for Mac downloaded quickly, but to install it the system needed a complete restart, which was an inconvenience. Technical support was not available, but the program did not reveal any bugs during testing. The lack of tutorials would be problematic for early Mac users since the interface was very cluttered and difficult to decipher. After the computer restarted, the application's main menu presented us with few graphics but many buttons. The top row offers main sections for key changes, repeat settings, and menu bars, among other options. Within those are a number of sub-buttons each adjusting some keyboard operation. The changes took effect quickly and operated as indicated. While it was difficult to sift through the available selections, once the desired option was found, it was easy to make changes to the settings. The presence of an uninstaller was also a welcome feature.

KeyRamp4MacBook for Mac performs its functions well but the interface could be more user-friendly. While the program is not likely to appeal to average users, it will be appreciated by those who need to make changes to their keyboard configuration.
