So I spilled water on my laptop keyboard. Really not a good idea. It killed my ~ and escape keys.
Being an avid call of duty gamer, this is a no-no. I need my ~ key to pull down my console, and my escape key to get out of the game.
Something good happened as a result. I learned how to remap my keyboard. I made my Caps lock key my new escape key, and remapped the windows key to the ~.
Run the exe file. It’s incredibly simple, and allows you to replace any key with any other key. Also useful to remap those special keys your keyboard might have, like INTERNET, EMAIL, etc.
