I want to remap the right Ctrl key to Shift+F10.

I've been following to these Scan codes, created Scancode Map in the registry and its contents are:

0000 0000
0200 0000
5D00 1DE0
0000

where 5D00 is F10 with a left Shift modifier, 1DE0 is control right(I've remapped this to a letter and it works).

PS: Shift+F10 brings up the context menu, the menu that pops up when you right click.

  • autohotkey will certainly be easier, but +1 if you do manage to figure it out. – William Feb 21 '15 at 3:57

According to this, E0 acts an escape scan code, and when combined with F10 signals key F15. F15 in Windows pops up the context menu.

Newer keyboards lack keys F13-F24, but in my case I was able to map the Right Control Key to the Windows context menu with the following register entry at

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/Keyboard Layout

and created entry (case sensitive)

"Scancode Map" of type REG_BINARY.

and inside

0000 0000
0200 0000
5DE0 1DE0
0000
