I've been using Dvorak on my Linux machine for a long time, and I've finally convinced my sister to do the switch as well.

Using Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator (MSKLC) I easily managed to install Dvorak layout, but shortcuts like Ctrl+C doesn't move, it's the same spot, so after moving the keys around I actually press Ctrl+J.

It's kinda hard when it comes to irregular shortcuts in other programs. Because the program will tell me to use Ctrl+B, but then I'd have to rethink that it actually is Ctrl+X.

How do I make a keyboard layout that works completely, and doesn't just affect the letter appearing when pressing the buttons?

Thank you! :)

Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator


I usually use Linux yes, where everything works perfectly, but on Windows by using MSKLC to make my keyboard layout, shortcuts remain at the physical location on the keyboard.
