Help to swap Windows and ALT keys on macOS

I'm trying to work out how to swap the Windows and ALT keys on my K95 Platinum keyboard.

 

I'm running macOS Mojave and iCUE Software (macOS) version 3.16.56.

 

I have Mac keycaps that replace the standard Windows keycaps, so this is why I want to swap the position of both the LH and RH Windows keys.

 

I known the CKB-Next application can do this do this, but I would like to use Mac iCUE software if possible.

You probably found a solution. I just saw this today. You just need to remap the keys.

 

See :

https://www.powermax.com/how-to-remap-keys-on-your-mac/

 

Overview :

Step 1: Open System Preferences → Keyboard → Modifier Keys.

Step 2: Select your third-party Windows keyboard via the Select keyboard drop down box.

Step 3: For the Option (⌥) Key setting, select ⌘ Command.

Step 4: For the Command (⌘) Key setting, select (⌥) Option.

Step 5: Click OK and close System Preferences.

I got mine from MaxKeyboard.

 

I found the required symbol files on Reddit, and MaxKeyboard printed them for me. MaxKeyboard were kind enough to have mine delivered via DHL instead of regular post as I was afraid I might not get them (My delivery was from US to India).

 

 

 

You can view my keycaps here.

I have the same question! Where did you get the keycaps. I am considering buying a K70 MK2 Low Profile, but since I don't know if I am going to buy a Mac or build a PC I would like the keycaps to have the MacOS symbols for command and option on them.

 

 

 

MaxKeyboard is a good place to get your Customized Keycap. Look at my previous post for more details.
