Remap Caps Lock key in Windows

It may be sometimes useful to remap certain keys on your keyboard. The Caps Lock key on the keyboard is not useful to me, and I prefer to remap it as a Ctrl key. This makes Emacs a little easier to use on standard keyboards. It is certain possible to do this in Windows using a free tool from Microsoft. You can find it below.
