Would you provide me with your AHK file? I'm thinking the best solution might be to just provide sample AHK files for a couple of non-USA keyboards and solve it that way.

Post as text, or send direct.

Thanks Tom,

Backslash is "AltGr +" and accent grave is actually a prefix key so neither are directly available on Scandinavian keyboard.

I map them to keys that are in the same location as the original keys on a US keyboard (lower left and upper left edges of keyboard) so
that I do not have to retrain my muscle memory should I operate in e.g. the US.

Good invo Bjorn,

Single quote is handled in the configurer function keys tab, so I
address it.

Accent grave & backlash would be good to fix, but only if they
appear on
non-US keyboards in useful locations.

You say below that you map them to totally different keys. Is that
because the locations of the accent grave and backslash are in
inconvenient locations, or because they do not appear on the
Scandinavian keyboard? It looks to me like they are inconveniently
