How to Rebind Keys

For our example over here, we will use the Diverge TM as an example.

Downloading Default Layout Files

Before attempting to rebind keys for your device, you may wish to download the default layout of your device first.

  • Using your browser, navigate to UniKeyboard and select the page for your device.
  • Go to the download tab, then look for the layout file over there.

  • Alternatively, to edit a key to special characters (such as FN, controls, shifts, macros, etc), you should select "Key Menu," it may take a while for the key menu to pop up.
