    Default I've dedicated my Caps Lock key to F7 thanks to Irfanview

    I've been using Irfanview for years and have changed my caps lock to be F7 (and my F7 is still F7)
    I used a program called Sharpkeys that remaps the keys on the keyboard. I'm sure some of you know better remapping programs.

    F7 as you all know is the move command and I have used Irfanview to sort pictures for years. Now that my mostly unused caps lock button is remapped, to sort pictures I use little finger on caps lock, then the next 3 fingers (ring, middle, index) sit directly on the numbers 1, 2 and 3. Then my thumb hits the space bar.

    In this manner I don't have to look at the keyboard to find F7 (it's placed differently on all my different keyboards with laptops being the worst). The right hand can use the mouse, hit delete or do the various shortcuts for navigating (ctrl, M for random, ctrl arrows jumping 5 at a time, etc)
    I'll start a new post about a trick for using the move fields. (no need to ever change them)
