Apple - French keyboard on Windows
If you're on Windows and you need the apple-french keyboard layout, this project is the solution.
It gives you:
- the perfect layout
ctrlto be closer to macosx (like copy/paste)
- a way to use the media controls
At first, there's no mapping for Apple keyboard in Windows. You have to find and install the correct layout. Though, on Internet, you'll find some but they do not handle well for instance
>. This is why I did my own layout.
Here, you've got the source of the layout and the distribuable.
If you want to edit the source, you'll need the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator. You'll be able to edit
If you want to install it, just run
cmd as control to do copy, paste, control all the text, etc. So we need to modify
cmd and vice-versa. We'll be macosx compliant.
How to use media controls
Download this app, it will do the job for you.

- There's no
right-ctrl(yet?). Could be sometimes a problem. Last time, I played to a specific game, it askes me to make one choice between two solutions. To make this choice, it was
right-ctrl. I couldn't choose the
right-ctrlchoice. Too bad.
left-altdoesn't work like
left-altis reserved to Windows. All characters are available only via
right-alt. Do not use
left-altfor that, you'll be surprised if not.
- You can edit more your keyboard layout via KeyTweak. I was able for instance to disable windows key (on ctrl, as I've switched cmd and ctrl).
