KeyTweak is a lightweight but powerful tool that enables you to easily reconfigure your keyboard.
The interface of the software is plain and simple. You can view a virtual representation of your keyboard with all the keys numbered 1 through 126. So, all you have to do is pick a specific key, choose the new remapping and apply changes.
Furthermore, you can remap the special buttons which are included in multimedia keyboards (e.g. “Play”, “Eject”, “Volume Up”, “Mute”), as well as the ones found in web browsers (e.g. “Back”, “Forward”, “Stop”, “Refresh”, “Home”) and power management keys (e.g. “Sleep”, “Power Off”).
In order for the changes to take effect, you must restart your computer. On the top side of the screen, you can view the remapped keys which are currently in effect, and on the bottom right corner you can check out pending changes.
In addition, you can enable full teach mode or half teach mode, view a raw map, save a remap file (in the KeyTweak format), disable a particular key and restore settings to default.
KeyTweak consumes a low amount of system CPU and memory, and contains a comprehensive user manual (we cannot access it from the “Help” menu, but you can find it in the installation directory).
The only time KeyTweak pops up errors is when we are playing in “Full Teach Mode” (the program automatically closes). Otherwise, this tool comes in handy for users of any level of experience.\ more
