I want to remap "<" key in Autohotkey. But "<" symbol is a modifier symbol. Therefore Autohotkey doesn't remap it like a normal key:

CapsLock & <::Send {`&}

How to escape a modifier symbol in order to remap that key?

By default in AutoHotkey it is the grave accent/backtick character `

You can set it to be any other character in your script, if you prefer. Full details here: http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/_EscapeChar.htm

Edit:

Actually, I think you have something else going on here. < is not a modifier -- at least not in this context. I just tried this and it worked fine for me:

CAPSLOCK & <::Msgbox,it works!
