Caps Lock to switch to Japanese input in Windows 10?
February 6, 2016 10:48 PM   Subscribe

So I've got a Windows 10 VM set up on my MacBook. One thing I really like is the fact that I can use the Caps Lock key in Mac OS to switch to Japanese input (i.e. Caps Lock on = Hiragana input). Is there some way to finagle Windows 10 to work like this instead of the fiddly shift-Caps Lock type shortcuts that seem to be the norm?

You could use Autoit to write a script to do this.

Here is the relevant function

I believe on Windows 10 it's Windows Key + Space Bar, which doesn't seem too fiddly to me.

Response by poster: Win+space would work fine if it weren't a VM (command-space is Spotlight in the host Mac OS)

Maybe I just need to get used to shift-Caps Lock and the like.
