I need help finding a key remapping program for my Yoga 710

I just got a Lenovo Yoga 710. I like the computer except for the stupid keyboard layout. The right shift key is way too far away to be useful. Especially since I'm in law school and our exams are timed and typed, I don't have time to fiddle around with this badly placed shift key. I want to remap the page up key to be a shift key and the right shift key to be the page up key.

 

I've looked into three different remapping programs so far and none of them are going to work for me.

 

Sharpkeys does not allow you to switch the keys. So I would either have to lose my shift or my page up key. I want to keep both of them.

 

Keytweak does not work with Windows 10 computers. Since my computer is running Windows 10, it will not work.

 

Keymapper should have worked, but for some reason it's not registering with my keyboard.

 

I could use some help with this please. Otherwise I'm going to have to take this laptop back because it is just too frustrating to be any use to me. Thanks.

Read the first part of this where it covers mapping keys in the registry.  I suggest you keep good notes on what you change in case you ever want to revert.

Hi caitybeck , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

In addition :

Couple of community members were successfull with KeyTweak (v 2.3.0) to run in Windows 10. 

On a half teach mode they were able to perform their remaps.  

 

You can check on this discussion for review.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards
