Loving my classic IBM keyboard - it there a way to remap keys so I get the "Windows keys"?

I'm running Windows 7 & 8 and I wonder if there is a way to make it so that some of the unused keys act like the two "Windows" keys?

Like say make so that when pressing Scroll Lock it's like I was pressing the windows key normally found between CTRL and ALT on modern keyboards.

    One of these might do it.

    Depending on how old your Model M is, it might be time to consider upgrading?

    Thank you both.

    Looks like the key-mappers should do the trick. Otherwise getting one of those new ones may be called for only it will feel a little silly replacing my Model M - after all it's a recent one from the late eighties :-)

    Depending on what you do, it's totally worth it. I program for a living, and a good keyboard is one of the best investments I've ever made. Seriously, if you spend more than 8 hours a day in front of a keyboard you should sink something into getting a really nice one.

    I use a rosewill at home which was a little less than 80 bucks when I got it. At work I've got a knesis. They're nice, but if you get one, find one to test-drive for like a month to decide if you like it.

    You can sell your M I'm sure. I have one, and I much prefer not having the Windows keys. I can't be .the only one.
