Map Japanese Backslash Key to Right Shift

The Japanese keyboard has several more keys then the English keyboard. If your are (un)fortunate enough to have a Japanese keyboard, but are running English version of Windows, you'll have some dead keys on your Japanese keyboard. With a smaller notebook keyboard, sometimes, the Japanese version pushes the Right Shift key to the far right of the keyboard, saving space for the underscore, pipe, and backslash key. However, this key ends up being a dead key in the English Windows. It's desirable to use this key as a Right Shift key, instead. This freeware utility helps you do that.

The key next to the Right Shift button is a dead key.

Map Japanese Backslash Key to Right Shift stays in the Windows Taskbar while it's active. To disable this utility, right click on its icon and choose Suspend Hotkeys, Pause Script, or Exit.
