I use both Windows and OSX on my MacBook Pro.

Due to the nature of the keyboard it's very annoying to run Windows, for example, quite a few of the keys you would usually use are missing on a MBP - end, pageup, etc.

Is it possible to map some of the OSX shortcuts in Windows? For example, can I map Cmd+C to COPY, Cmd+V to PASTE, Cmd+Right to END, etc?

I managed to do all of the above with AutoHotKey

AutoHotkey is a free, open-source utility for Windows. With it, you can:

  • Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.
  • Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.
  • Expand abbreviations as you type them. For example, typing "btw" can automatically produce "by the way".
  • Create custom data-entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. See GUI for details.
  • Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
  • Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.
  • Run existing AutoIt v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.
  • Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don't have AutoHotkey installed.
