My keyboard is messed up, the 'i' and 'o' keys don't work. I'm currently making do with alt+numpad ascii... but it's incredibly annoying (still less than the damn on screen keyboard).
Figured I'd swap some keys around so I could get my vowels back.
I've changed the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout registry file Scancode Map with the following binary 1.
However, it had no effect whatsoever. My '+' and '«' keys are still working as such, and I'm going crazy. Bright side is, I now know h♂w t♂ make gender f♀gures! ♥♥♥
