    The registry file bundled with Colemak for remapping Caps to Backspace doesn't work in the latest Windows 10 build. However, it can still be remapped with KeyTweak. Maybe be worth mentioning this in the Windows download page.

    There seems to be Colemak keymap available in Windows 10 under English (US) these days, and backspace on caps-lock works on it as expected.

    Where is it? I can't find it in the keyboard list.

    Nope, found 3 Dvorak variants (2-handed, left-/right-handed) as before, but no Colemak as before.

    If you use the alternative installer https://forum.colemak.com/topic/1621-co … backspace/ it will work just fine without any tweaks. And the easiest way to get it is Chocolatey https://chocolatey.org/packages/colemak
