I have always swapped CapsLock and L-Ctrl. I'd like to now swap Esc with the Tilde/Backtick keys.

What Windows (XP) registry setting do I use for scancode to ensure both of those keys are appropriately swapped?

I like that it isn't a service or program, but just sets the registry. Let me take a look. – Xepoch Dec 13 '09 at 6:08

Customize your keyboard layout with the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator.

Locks up everytime when running under XP (although it said it might when it started). – Xepoch Dec 13 '09 at 3:18
