  • Shortcut for rotating canvas by 15° left or right without a mouse

  • Caps Lock Behaviour Disabled in Gnome
    Sharpkeys can swap keys, the readme says as much: > Things that SharpKeys will do: > ... > Allow you to swap two keys with each other - e.g. You can swap Left Windows with Left Control and vice versa I do have a vague recollection of Sharpkeys previously saying that it couldn’t, but that I tried and it worked. Long time since I last used Windows though. - Source: Hacker News / 10 months ago
  • Total Commander

Wikipedia lists 23 of which I think -- haven't checked -- the majority are FOSS. > Ironically windows 11 can’t do vertical taskbars. True. Easily fixed with Explorer Patcher, though.

    I find the Insert key extremely annoying (I especially hate it when I'm typing on Word, accidentally press it and then whatever I type overwrites text that's already been written, very irritating!) and I have disabled it with a tool called SharpKeys. Whenever I really need Insert (which is rare), I can still use the equivalent key found in the NumPad. Source: over 1 year ago
