How to change default Windows key bindings?

  1. Because I'm now hooked on a keyboard-centric setup on Linux, I'd like to change Windows 7's default key bindings to something more sensible.

    - At the least, I want to swap a bunch of keybindings; e.g. Win+x to close a window, Win+p to open the Start menu, Win+j or Win+k to cycle through windows, etc.. (Think XMonad.)

    - Ideally I'd like to be able to specify a "master" keybinding, and chain everything else to that. (Think Ratpoison).

    Oh, bonus points if anyone can remember the registry key to make all resizeable windows start maximized... I forget that one.

    You can use AutoHotkey. Wiki article: -
  3. Thanks, I didn't realize AutoHotkey could do that. Cool.
