I'm used to a Mac keyboard and that means my finger expect to find the shortcut key to the left of the spacebar. How can I turn the Windows key (command key on a Mac keyboard) into the Control key and vice versa?

Quite simply, use this AutoHotKey script

RCtrl::RWin
RWin::RCtrl
LCtrl::LWin
LWin::LCtrl

Works for all but CtrlAltDel.

A workaround for allowing simultaneous CtrlAlt, is to map left to right, and right to left (as opposed to left-left, right-right) i.e..

LAlt::RCtrl
RAlt::LCtrl
RCtrl::LAlt
LCtrl::RAlt

bottom section does not work anymore, gives an error of duplicate keys, i tested this on windows 8.1 on a macbook air and ctrl alt del works normally without a script – ExceptionSlayer Dec 11 '14 at 4:36

How-to Geek has a nice solution for your request:

Map Any Key to Any Key on Windows 7 / XP / Vista

This is a great solution since there isn't a built in option in the Windows control panel. – James Watt Apr 28 '10 at 12:47
    
This won't work as SharpKeys (which that page tells you to install) won't let you swap two keys! – Mike Jun 14 '14 at 5:35

Take a look at this AutoHotkey script that pretty much brings the mac keyboard experience to Windows.

This AutoHotkey configuration file makes usual keyboard shortcuts work with an Apple keyboard on Windows. It has been testet with a german keyboard layout, but should work under different layouts as well.
