I am using macros software and recorded phrases on PhraseExpress.

I would like to assign key combinations specifically to RIGHT ALT (because I never use it).

But I can't assign specifically to right alt, I can only assign to ALT in general.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I managed to do something:

in MICROSOFT KEYBOARD LAYOUT CREATOR you can set that RIGHT ALT will be ALT+CTRL and then I can assign shortcuts to CTRL+ALT combination, instead of just ALT. So that kinda works for me!

Yep, you are right, on my STEELSERIES APEX I can.

But I want to do it on my laptop (because there I am actually lacking keys).

Does that mean that Windows somehow CAN recognize left and RIGHT ALT or does it mean that STEELSERIES keyboard is built in such a way that these two buttons are different?

What about LEFT and RIGHT SHIFT?
