How to Disable or Change a Key Action in Your Keyboard Using Sharp Keys?
Recently I got my new laptop "Dell XPS M1530". Its great but I faced one problem. My previous laptop was a Toshiba one and it had the "Delete" key placed between right Ctrl key and left arrow key. This new Dell laptop has the Delete key at top-right corner. I found it very uncomfortable and pressed a wrong key quite frequently.

Then click on "Type Key" button in "To Key" section and now press the key which you want to assign to the previous key.
