How to swap Caps Lock key and Control key simply[Windows10]





For old generation people like me, or engineers who are used to unix (e.g. Sun Pizza-top work station), the position of the control key in the lower left would be difficult to use, I think. Recently, mac users may also like the control key next to the "a"  because the position of the control key is the position of the Caps Lock key of Windows.

On a different note, I prefer to use control-h or Control-d to erase characters rather than use Back Space or DELETE key because I do not want to move my fingers from my home position.

I have been using the key switch application for a long time. However, I would like to introduce this utility this time. This utility tool, which is released from Microsoft, can simply swap the control key and the caps lock key.

Ctrl2cap - Windows Sysinternals
This is a kernel-mode driver that demonstrates keyboard input filtering in order to turn caps-locks into control keys.

The above tools are utilities released by Microsoft. It has not been updated since November 2006, but I confirmed that it will also work with Windows10.

In addition, this driver operates in kernel mode, so it has less impact on the application than the key switch applications that run in user mode.



Please download from the following site and unzip the downloaded file.

Ctrl2Cap v2.0

How to install

Right-click the Windows button in the lower left corner and start the command prompt (Admin).

Windows Menu

Go to the folder where Ctrl2Cap is unzipped, and then run the following command.

ctrl2cap /install 

ctrl2cap /install



Restart your PC to be done.

Take note, save for uninstall.

How to uninstall

As with installation, go to the ctrl2cap folder from the command prompt (Admin) and type the following command:

ctrl2cap /uninstall 

ctrl2cap /uninstall

Reboot your PC to be done.

That's all!
