Creating a custom keyboard layout for Windows

without comments

I recently switched from a keyboard with German layout to one with US layout. But I still need German umlauts and other special characters.

US International seemed to contain everything I needed. There was just one annoying problem: Dead keys.

In Ubuntu this was no problem, there is a “US Intl. – no dead keys” layout.

I didn’t find this layout in Windows. But Microsoft provides a tool to create own keyboard layouts, The Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator.

With this tool you can open existing layouts and modify them. Have fun.
