I'm a mac-user in the office, but now i have a windows laptop for travel.

I've already employed SharpKeys to swap left ctrl and left alt, giving me mac-like access to most common shortcuts. This really got me 96% of the way to having a seamless transition between mac and windows keyboards.

My issue now is the application switcher, which i use constantly on both mac and Windows. Now that my keys are re-mapped i have to reach for left ctrl + tab to call up the app switcher.

Any bright ideas for how to leave my ctrl and alt keys remapped AND use ctrl + tab to call up the app switcher?

AutoHotKey looks promising, but not sure that it will do it for me.


This AutoHotKey mapping should make Left control + Tab behave exactly like Alt + Tab behaves:

LCtrl & Tab::AltTab
