I use keyboard shortcuts a lot – you can say I’m a keyboard freak :o)
(I’m a Windows 7 user.)
However I note a couple of things:
– I can set shortcuts natively from different applications
– I can set shortcuts from Start Menu > Right-click > Properties
However, this leads to a lot of shortcuts all round the OS without a centralized place.
What I’d like to find is a configurable “centralized” shortcut manager, which ‘realizes’ which shortcuts are currently set and allows me to set new shortcuts from there.
A few (more) observations:
1. I thought of using emergeDesktop’s command software. However since I stuck to the Windows shell in Windows 7, maybe that’s not the best way to go. Also I’m not sure whether it looks up shortcuts not set from within it.
2. There’s a program (reviewed on MUO) called Qliner. However, it has a native shortcut Win-Z … is this changeable? It was also reviewed a few years back and I don’t know if it’s compatible with Windows 7 (their website seems not to have been updated recently and only mentions Windows up till Vista).
(review here http://qliner.com/hotkeys/overview.htm)
3. Finally (this is another question): I use FARR (Find and Run Robot – it’s an awesome program). Maybe there’s an addon/plugin/hack to use FARR to manage shortcuts to launch other programs?
