Remap "Ctrl+S" to Single "Windows" Key - Possible?

20 Mar 2017, 11:16

First, pre-posting preview does not show the image of my keyboard via closing link, so if there is none in this post, click on link. As to image itself, please ignore labels and key highlights I had added (they were for another question a while back). Still the keyboard I use, Logitech MK520.

Subject line/title is pretty self-explanatory. I never use the Windows key, so hoping to put it to better use. Have found nothing so far anywhere where this is possible. Swapping key functions, yes, but to map multiple key presses to one key seems no-go.

True/false?

I hope I'm wrong, but got a suspicion answer it is a no-go.
If on the other hand this is possible with AutoHotkey and/or other workaround, I welcome the specific script, etc. needed.

Thank you for reality-checking me either way.

Have you been thru the tutorial ?
https://autohotkey.com/docs/Tutorial.htm#s2
https://autohotkey.com/docs/Tutorial.htm#s3
You might also want to have a look at those:
https://autohotkey.com/docs/Hotkeys.htm
https://autohotkey.com/docs/KeyList.htm
https://autohotkey.com/docs/commands/Send.htm

I'm pretty sure you'll figure it out !

PS: Win key shortcuts are so usefull, I find it strange that you never use that key. ( http://www.shortcutmania.com/Windows-7- ... rtcuts.htm )
