Convert Caps Lock into something useful

remappingYou probably don’t use the Caps Lock key and, as you can see, that key is wasting a precious spot on the keyboard. So why don’t we map it to something useful?


The easiest way to do this in Windows would be using AutoHotkey. Once you have installed it, just edit the configuration file and add this line:
Capslock::SendInput /
Right click on AutoHotkey’s icon, reload the script and you are ready to go.

In this case, I mapped it to / because my keyboard distribution is a nightmare when I need to type linux paths.
