Is there a way which I can use mac-style shortcuts in Windows?

My personal computer is a Macbook, but my work computer is a Windows PC. Using keyboard shortcuts is a nightmare...

Like the copy command. I want to use Windows + C, not Ctrl + C.

Searching in google just gives me how to use Windows-style shortcuts on Mac, not the opposite.

I read a post recently that says that some Windows system shortcuts' keys are defined inside DLL's, so they're in some manner hardcoded (like Ctrl+Alt+Del). But shortcuts inside other apps depend on how they were programmed, so I think you're stuck with them unless the app itself provides some way to change the mapping. It's that or mapping/switching the Win/Super key with the Ctrl key using a 3rd party software like they state in this post:

Quite simply, use this AutoHotKey script

RCtrl::RWin

RWin::RCtrl

LCtrl::LWin

LWin::LCtrl

Works for all but Ctrl + Alt + Del.

I assume AutoHotKey is that software

Good luck.
