I have a problem with the left and ctrl on my MacBook Pro (mid 2012).

I can use the right but since there's only one ctrl, I was wondering because there are two buttons and two buttons, if I could reconfigure one of them to replace the control feature.

Is there a way to do this?

  • Please define your issue, will a replacement of keys work? What did you do with your keyboard? – Rob Mar 24 '14 at 10:36

    He did not do anything to his keyboard. There is only one Ctrl on MB-keyboards. He wonders why there are two shift, two apple and two alt keys. – bot47 Mar 24 '14 at 10:55

Install KeyRemap4MacBook, save a file like this as ~/Library/Application Support/KeyRemap4MacBook/private.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::OPTION_R, KeyCode::CONTROL_R</autogen>

Then open the KeyRemap4MacBook application, press the ReloadXML button, and enable the setting.
