I have just taken another look at Key Tweak --- I think it is a later version than the one I saw earlier but it is still not clear if it  is suitable for use with Windows 8/8.1.  More to the point there are two things which I have not been able to sort out,  1. how does the program deal with keys which have two symbols  2. how does it deal with specialised but frequently used symbols in particular @  for emails,  and # which is widely used.  I cannot find anything about this in the program or the manual, nor can I find these two symbols in the program.  If I could I would very probably use it.

 

Can anyone answer this?

Key Tweak was reviewed by Bleeping Computer earlier (Jan 6, 2015) but no mention is made of Windows 8 or 8.1.

 

Product Description from Travis Krumsick:

The functionality is made possible by a registry value first documented in  Windows 2000, but and included in XP, Vista and Windows 7.

KeyTweak: Reassign and redefine keyboard keys in Windows 8 / 7

 

That is the heading of the article about Key Tweak in on the Windows Club site and there are other references to W8 there too.  That is why my interest in the program was revived.  I wondered if some modifications to the program had been made recently to make it W8 friendly (if so its about time!).
