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

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 at 5:35
