"In Linux, use the xmodmap utility

xmodmap -e 'clear Lock' -e 'keycode 0x42 = Escape'

In Windows, you can use AutoHotkeys, or change your registry settings.

See this tip from Vim wiki for detailed instructions for Windows and also the linked tip for Linux."

Unfortunately, it's not as simple as just entering a command, but it is a well-investigated topic. I'd go with the AutoHotkey method, if I were you.
