I want to map the cursor keys to CapsLock-i, j, k, l

On WinXP/32, is this possible system-wide (for all applications)?

(don't need standard CapsLock functionality)

You could try TouchCursor.

It can be easily configured to activate when the Caps Lock key is held down and works well across all programs.

This appears to do exactly what I want. Thanks! – feklee Dec 1 '10 at 19:04

Add this to an AutoHotKey script:

CapsLock & i::Send {Up}
CapsLock & j::Send {Left}
CapsLock & k::Send {Down}
CapsLock & l::Send {Right}

Does this preserve auto-repeat? When I press CapsLock-i in a Texteditor and hold it, then the cursor should move to the right until I release CapsLock-i. – feklee Dec 1 '10 at 16:17
@feklee: Yes. (just tested in a text editor on Windows Vista) – yhw42 Dec 1 '10 at 16:21
Cool - thanks! It's good to know that there is an alternative to TouchCursor, in case that doesn't meet my expectations. – feklee Dec 1 '10 at 19:07

If you want to map cursor keys or anything related with mapping keys. You should take a look at autohotkey.
