Windows 7: Use alt key for copy/paste?

Use alt key for copy/paste?

I just moved back to Windows from being on a Mac for several years. The only thing I truly miss is the way that the "apple" key worked. You could switch between open programs and do copy, cut, paste, etc commands with it. It was nice to be able to do everything with one key.

My question is would there be a way to assign the alt key to do the same functions as the ctrl key? I'd still like to be able to use it for alt+tab function, but being able to do copy and paste with it as well would be awesome.

Thanks!

No. Not without breaking everything else.

That's kinda what I figured. Thanks for the reply.

I guess the $1100 I saved vs a similarly equipped MacBook Pro can help ease the pain of this inconvenience
