Key Manager Comments

ATNSoft Key Manager -- Like Karabiner for Windows!

Positive Comment by Hypersphere
about Key Manager and AutoHotkey, Karabiner Jun 2015

When I am using my Mac, I rely on Karabiner remapping software. When I am using my Windows machine, I turn to ATNSoft Key Manager. It provides the best blend of power with ease of use for keyboard remapping on the Windows platform.

AutoHotKey is arguably the most powerful key remapping software for Windows, but it has a somewhat steep learning curve.

With ATNSoft Key Manager, I was able to remap my V60 keyboard to a HHKB layout within minutes. This included creating a Fn key and including key combinations. Moreover, I could switch profiles without logging off or rebooting, and unlike many other key remapping software, Key Manager does not make changes to the Window Registry.

Highly recommended!

Great!

I suggested they put there program up on this site and I got a 30% discount!
The main reason i got this instead of many other remappers is it does not require a reset so you can switch quickly between setting.
They have a trial version and a free play version if you cant pay but if you can and are looking for a tool like this. this is the one to get!
