Keyboard map files control the action of keys on your PC keyboard, so that they correspond to specific host keys or provide keyboard shortcuts. When you create a terminal session document, it includes a pointer to a default, built-in keyboard map file. You can choose a different keyboard map file for each session, and you can create custom keyboard map files with the settings you prefer.

Option Description
Select another keyboard map file Click to choose a different keyboard map file from a list of existing keyboard map files. The file must be in a trusted location.
