I do not use my right Alt, and I would like to have a Underline key on that place.

Is there a way to configure my right Alt to be an underline character key?

update: using Windows 7

By "underline key" you mean something like Ctrl+U in Word, or did you mean the underscore key? If the former, there's no generic key for that and different apps may use different shortcuts, so this will probably require a fairly complex AutoHotkey script that will do per-app key remapping. – Karan Jun 7 '13 at 1:57

You should look into AutoHotkey. You can use that program to assign different functions to your keys or you can create your own keyboard shortcuts.

Check out Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator. With that you can create you own keyboard layout and install it on you computer in control panel -> keyboard. You should be able to map Alt to what ever you want.
