    Default Keyboard Remapping

    My computer's keyboard lacks a Pause button, which is distinctly annoying when it comes to games. I'd like to reassign the combination Ctrl+P as being the Pause key. Could anyone please point me in the right direction?

    Well, one way would be to edit your registry files under

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout

    This, however, may be quite dangrous if you mess or delete something. There is a very handy link if you should decide to do it that way.

    There appears to be several free programs that can change the registry keys for keyboard layout, but I haven't used any of them and can't attest to their reliability

    A lacksa whosawhatchawhosis? What make and model are your keyboard? I was under the impression that most all 101 and 104 keyboards, including international ones, had the Pause key...

    I use KeyTweak to remap the keyboard. There are probably newer ones out there.
