Reaching for the ~ on the upper left with my pinkie is becoming a pain. Is it possible to remap this to the "Caps Lock" key in one go? I tried KeyRemap4MacBook and PCKeyboardHack but failed.

PCKeyboardHack can remap the "Caps Lock" to key to (`), but I still have to do SHIFT + CAPS LOCK to achieve my ~. What I am after for is when I press "CAPS LOCK", it should be ~.


You can use PCKeyboardHack to map caps lock to a key like F19:

Then map F19 to shift+` in private.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::F19, KeyCode::BACKQUOTE, ModifierFlag::SHIFT_L</autogen>
