Ctl - G hurts my hand

The difficulty in holding down the control button, then the g button is that it hurts my hand to spread my fingers that far apart. I want to move the mouse in my right hand and pick color with my left. I would have made it spacebar + g. Any plans on changing it to an easier combo?

I have exact same problem. But any key closer than G would help. Thanks! :)

Control - S (for select) comes to mind. That works for fifth and third fingers on just about anyone.

Yes I meant that the fingers were on differnet hands, not the same hands.

We're talking ease of use here, not if it's possable.

How about ctrl-c which has always been used for "copy".

Take a 6' piece of coathanger wire. bend a 90 degree angle one inch from each end. Use this tool in your left hand.

Tape a straw to your nose to hit the G.

I use the free RemapperXP.exe to put the CRTL key back where it belongs (under the pinky), making this operation a snap. It's reliable and solid. You can change settings anytime you like in control panel.

Thx for the kind suggestion. But i guess instead of a download that uses disk storage space & have to turn them both on, which I wouldn't do,(heck, I wouldn't even recall what thing to turn on with Color Picker!), Iwill just use whatever seems easiest at that moment.

Why "Ctl - Anything"? I mean where's the eyedropper?
