Swap ctrl and alt keys in Windows for Emacs users

this article has been permanently moved to my new blog 


  1. Autohotkeys does not work well for remapping keys, especially modifiers.
    Sharpkeys has been working well for my French keyboard : I swapped LCtrl and Caps-Lock, then put LCtrl on Apps and mapped Apps to Hyper key in emacs.
    Very good and well documented article on the topic.

    1. indeed Frabric, for swapping key purpose I do recommend Sharpkeys which functions in lower level comparing to autohotkeys.
      My Finnish keyboard AltGr is not recognized by Sharpkeys, so I needed to figure out all those hex values in the register files. Luckily it all went out well after 2hr studies.
