SharpKeys lets you reprogram your keyboard without requiring any Registry hacking skills or any other tricks. It's a neat way to switch to a new keyboard layout or simply prank your friends. Reversing any unwanted changes is just as easy, which makes this program a nifty tool if you have a need for it.
SharpKeys lets you assign a new meaning to any key on your keyboard. You can make a letter a number, a number a function, and any other change your needs dictate. The program lets you make multiple changes at once, so you can completely reprogram your keyboard to turn it into a Dvorak keyboard or to utilize another obscure keyboard layout. Once you've made your changes, the program processes them all at once and requires a reboot. Luckily, you can tap the function key along with any key to get its original meaning, in case you accidentally lock yourself out of your computer with SharpKeys. That's quite handy, because the program might be a huge pain, otherwise.
As it is now, SharpKeys is a cool way to change how your keyboard works, which can save you from chronic mistypes or just serve as a good way to play tricks on someone.
