Remove the Caps-Lock key from the keyboard. In its place, put two smaller keys: Copy and Paste. Shift-Copy could be used for Cut.

    Its a good plan. A lot of the Sun keyboards (the old ones I think) have several extra keys on the left hand side of the keyboard for copy/paste/cut/undo etc. They are very useful. I would imagine that we are going into the world of regonfigureable keyboards now though. Depending on what application you are running, the lesser used keys (f13-f15) could have a little oled screen on them with and incon to inform the function they perform. My $0.02… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks Allan, any cents/sense appreciated ๐Ÿ˜‰ You’re right! I have used the (older) Sun keyboards before on some Solaris Sparc boxes and forgot about those extra-keys-that-I-always-ignore-because-they’re-not-included-on-PC-keyboards… ๐Ÿ˜‰
