    Remapping characters - NOT keys


    Hi all.

    I've just spent some time (again) on a Mac and there is just one thing from a Mac I would love to have in my Windows. The placement of the @ key. I'm running a Norwegian layout on my keyboard, and therefor type AltGr+2 for my @ (opposed to the garbagef+2 for the US layout). As more and more applications use @ for tagging people, it basically sucks to do a "two-handed-move" every time I want my @.

    So I downloaded SharpKeys and KeyTweak. Both nice tools for remapping keys. But that's just it. I don't want to remap the whole key, I just want to change one character / function of a key. I want my lowercase value to change, but keep my Uppercase. Did that make sense?
    As the key I want to map has * for uppercase i want to keep that, and exchange the ' symbol for @.

    So pure keymapping / swapping does not seem to do the trick. I've tried to look for software that can help me, or auto replace of text in Windows 10. But so far nothing has come to the surface that helps me.

    I use a laptop with it's internal keyboard as well as a docking with a attached keyboard.

    Any tips or tricks out there to point me in a direction to solve this?

    Grateful for any advice. And if you read this far - thank you for the time and attention.

    All the best

    You can use Clavier+ installed or portable to write text if pressing a key or combination of keys.

    Test the portable version.
