How to Remap Keys on your Keyboard

The keyboard on your Mac is designed to work well and doesn’t need remapping. The only time you should have to remap keys is if you are using a non-Apple keyboard.

The exception is if you have one of our keyboards that has built-in macOS compatibility like the K63 Wireless Gaming Keyboard or K63 Wired Gaming Keyboard. These keyboards will require no special setup as they are already set up for use with macOS.
