    It sounds like you want to learn how to make a keylogger, weather it be with ilegal intent or just quizitive and wanting to know more we cannot provide that kind of information, as this site focuses on defence. Though knowing how a keyloger works and how to make one helps companys develop anti-keyloggers. All I can say is keep experimenting and if you do suceed use the program on your own computer or with permision. It can be a valueble tool when used legitly

    As journy101 said you want to make a keylogger. It's very simple you just need to make a hook. You have to use the SetWindowsHookEx function API (see msdn for more).

    But as journy101 said can test this only in your box.
