Yesterday I asked how I could disable or reassign the infamous CAPS LOCK key. The accepted answer pointed me to AutoHotkey, a powerful free, open-source utility for Windows for automating key strokes and mouse clicks.

The tool includes a script language and even a compiler (!) and it seems to work very well. For example, I managed to map the middle mouse button to the ALT-TAB key combination using this script in Windows Vista:

MButton::AltTabAndMenu
return

Now, I wanted to do the same reassigning the CAPS LOCK key to ALT-TAB:

CapsLock::AltTabAndMenu
return

But this doesn't have the desired effect. Instead of showing the "ALT TAB" running applications menu, it shows the Vista Start menu, as if I had hit the WIN key.

Any suggestions?
