HotKeyz

  • Generic Company Place Holder HotKeyz

The program comes configured with 11 tasks you can launch with hot key combinations, for example, pressing the Windows Key - I to launch Internet Explorer, or Shift-Ctrl-Alt-C to launch the Control Panel. Double-click any existing entry to edit it, or from the menu select Hotkey -->New to create a new hotkey entry. Creating a new entry is exceptionally easy, because the program lists dozens of Windows commands and programs from which you can choose.

If you don't mind using the mouse a lot, you won't need this program. But anyone who would like to bypass the mouse, and use the keyboard more, will find this program a keeper.

Note: This program is donationware. It is free to try, but the author accepts and encourages donations towards further development.
