Mapping ALT to CTRL on Windows

Here are the simple steps to map these keys

  1. Install PowerToys
  2. Open Keyboard Manager
  3. Map the keys as shown below

That is it.

You can waste time with numerous other solutions

  1. Installing Hotkeys
  2. Messing with registry settings
  3. Reading through forums etc.,

Unfortunately I did all those until I found the PowerToys too. This is one tool Microsoft should buy or make the functionality part of the operating system.
