Get rid of your CapsLock Key!

You always wanted already get rid of the "crazy" CapsLock-Key, because it has no advantage but a lot of disadvantages!
(This method works on Win NT, Win 2000 and Win XP;
Win 95, 98, and ME don't work this way.)


Just implement the following registry file:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
"Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,2A,00,3A,00,00,00,00,00

You only have to boot your PC for getting activated this great tool.

If you are interested in the definition and how to change the scancodes in Windows have a look at following:

Scancodes in Windows: How does it work in detail ?

Keyboard-Scancodes

Windows NT 4, 2000 and XP support the possibility to redefine all keys via the registry. The key for this is the scancode of the keyboard for every single key.

For redefining the keys via there scancodes, you have to add the binary key "Scancode Map" in the registry at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout

This value contains a datastring (in binary), that informs the OS about every new scancode where to put it to what other scancode.

An example you can see as follows:

00 00 00 00  Headerinformation

00 00 00 00  Flags

02 00 00 00  number of definitions (including the Null-Terminator - in this example 2)

2A 00 3A 00  Left Shift-Key shall be availabe at the CapsLock as well

00 00 00 00  Null-Terminator

You should know that the scancodes hae to be entered in the "Little Endian" format. This means, that for the CapsLock key 003A, you have to enter 3A 00 instead.

It is interesting to keep in mind, that you have to count the null-terminators with in the number of fields!
