Macro Keyboard With Leonardo

About: I love making and doning electronics and programming. I hope any tutorials I post here are helpfull.

I created this because I am annoyed with having to press 2 buttons on my keyboard to do shortcuts I often use.

Also went to a website that had code and I completely messed up my boards and I struggled to re-programme them. If you want me to add anything just tell me.
