    Win-C & Win-V Shortcuts Possible?


    Is it possible to create shortcuts (for example in Word and Chrome) to use Window key & C to copy and Windows Key and V to paste? How would I do it?

    And yes, I could use Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V but I would like to add this because I use both a Mac and Windows, so copy and paste would be in the same spot for both machines.

    Download and install Autohotkey (free scripting/hot key defining/window manipulation script tool).

    Create a text file containing
    ; # Windows key

    #c::Send, ^c

    #v::Send, ^v

    (The first line is just a comment)
    Then change the extension to ahk
    Then double click it

    Then try Win key + c, Win key + v
