Map Keys!

Hello

I've bought a new notebook. Now my old notebook had:

Ctrl      FN       Win       Alt      Space ..... as the keyboard layout

My new one has

FN      Ctrl       Win        Alt      Space

It is driving me crazy

as FN and Ctrl have same size, I can change them (hardware).

Is it possible to remap the keys, so that when I press FN, it presses Ctrl, and Ctrl => FN?

Thanks

Hi
The way that keyboards work in windows is that each key coresponds to a certain scancode which tells the OS what to do.
However, the FN key doesnt return a scancode to the OS but rather modifies the scancode of the key that it is press with.
So, unfortunately, the FN key cannot be remapped to another key. (At least as far as i know)
But you can always try using Win Xp Scan Code Mapper,
which provides a method that allows for mapping of scan codes.

Check this page for info in using Scan Code Mapper.
