    Remapping keyboard is a good idea to work comfortably and faster with the keyboards. It is much useful while playing games as well where you have to press two or more key combination or sequence of keys to perform particular game action. Anyways, there are some free programs that are quite sufficient for most remapping needs. you can go with a freeware G-Hotkey to remap your keyboard. It G-Hotkey allows you to create macros and remapped key sets for computer games.You can build Complex macros using G-hotkey which can send mouse clicks and multiple key presses to the active game window. Most interesting part is with g-hotkey Macros can be set to repeat at a specified or random interval with the ability to fire off another macro upon completion.

    Sharp Keys is a light weight portable software that writes the remapped keys to the Windows Registry which essentially means that the changes are active after the next reboot or log out.This official release includes support for up to 104 mappings, an extensive list of available keys, and a "Type Key" option to help when managing mappings. As it relies on internal support within Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, or Windows 7, you must be running one of these OS's for this Registry hack to work.
