Default Re Map keyboard?

Is it possible to change a key? My escape button doesn't work on my keyboard anymore... Is there a way to change it's function to another key?

Dude, keyboards are cheap, buy a new one. If you're really broke try taking apart the keyboard and cleaning it, especially in between the film layers. I've restored "broken" keys on several keyboards this way.

It's not a cheap keyboard. It's a fairly nice one. And it's not a press button, just a capacitive touch button or something like that. I've thought of these things before. What I am wondering is if there is a way to remap it so a different extra button functions as Esc.

Have you even tried cleaning it?

Anyways, modern keyboards don't have push buttons in them (even the really cheap ones).
