It is only a convention. You would need to change every program manually. Windows files get replaced with the original if edited so windows builtin programs are difficult to change.

with "keyremap" i can remap single keys, but what i would like to do is
to remap a combo (ctrl+c). i don't understand what you where trying to say.

Programs set Ctrl + C as copy. It's the program's decision. Nothing to do with windows except it's in the book programs should follow.

This is the accelarators from notepad.

This line tells notepad to execute command #769 (obviously 769 is the copy command in notepad) when Ctrl + C is pressed.

VK_C, 769, CONTROL, VIRTKEY

MAINACC ACCELERATORS

VK_N, 1, CONTROL, VIRTKEY

VK_O, 2, CONTROL, VIRTKEY

VK_P, 6, CONTROL, VIRTKEY

VK_INSERT, 769, CONTROL, VIRTKEY

oh right. now i understand.
so, do you think it would be possible to switch layout when i press the
control key, like on os x? so i could be in dvorak -> press control
(layout switches to qwerty) -> press "c" -> release control (layout
switches back to dvorak). am i dreaming here? :)

I tried a few things, and it's nice that I can now type again in english rather than dvorak gibberish, but they didn't work. Perhaps this program can help you.
Look at the 5th link.
