While this may be obvious, I was pretty dang pleased with myself when I managed to turn the Caps Lock key on my Windows 10 computer into an emacs friendly Hyper key. Here's what I did:
;; Add this to your standard AutoHotKey configuration CapsLock::AppsKey
Step 2. Use this elisp code to capture the Menu key from within emacs and map it to the Hyper modifier:
;; http://ergoemacs.org/emacs/emacs_hyper_super_keys.html (setq w32-pass-apps-to-system nil) (setq w32-apps-modifier 'hyper) ; Menu/App key
Step 3. Enjoy! I can now map any key binding using the H- modifier. Here's some code I added to my PHP setup:
(defun bs-php-mode-hook () (local-set-key '[backtab] 'indent-relative) (local-set-key (kbd "<H-left>") 'beginning-of-defun) (local-set-key (kbd "<H-right>") 'end-of-defun) (auto-complete-mode t) (require 'ac-php) (setq ac-sources '(ac-source-php )) (yas-global-mode 1) (setq indent-tabs-mode nil) (setq php-template-compatibility nil) (setq c-basic-offset 2))
The result: when I open up a PHP file, I can jump between function definitions by holding down Caps Lock and left or right arrow.
I feel like I just won the keyboard shortcut lottery!
