Hi, I'd like to map my apple keyboard's command key to the control key (So I don't go crazy using my windows computer at work). I'm new to microcontrollers, does anyone know a good place to start the project?

Thanks!

Sounds too difficult for a beginner project. The keyboard is USB so you would need a microcontroller with USB host and client ports. A USB analyser would be almost essential. It's entirely possible that the protocol is not fully documented (it is Apple).

In the end, if all else fails, isn't a surgery operation for a rewire in two adjacent buttons viable? (I didn't quite figure out if you still want to use the keyboard for Mac)
