Keyboard Codes Display is a free software that shows virtual key codes and names for keyboard keys. When you press a key, it shows the virtual code (or alt key code) associated with that particular key. For example, pressing the alphabet ‘a’ will display its code, which is ’65’. So pressing the code Alt+65 (using Numpad) in some text editor will type the letter ‘A’. So those who want to check the codes associated with all keyboard keys, this is really a good software.
Apart from this, it also shows the name for non-character keys and/or key value. Its interface has two main tabs where you can press a key to find its value and check the list of codes of all keys.
We have also added free software to check keys on keyboard.
