Keyboard utilities for Mac Windows Users

Today I have two utilities that will make using a dual boot computer much easier:

  •  Apple Mouse Utility: this was designed for using a one-button mouse under Windows.  However, the cool thing about it is that it allows you to use the Control +  Click shortcut you can use in Mac OS to right-click in XP.  To use the utility, save it somewhere on your hard drive then place a shortcut to it in the Startup folder. This is much better than having to do a Shift + F10 each time you need to right-click.
  • DoubleCommand: this extension allows you to remap the keys on a Windows keyboard while you’re in OS X. I used it to make my Windows key work as a Command key, and the Alt key to function as the Option key.
