Today's snapfiles RSS feed listed this very nice and smart program: HotkeyP
"HotkeyP is a small but powerful macro and hotkey utility that enables you to create a wide range of macro commands and keyboard shortcuts that can perform common tasks such as opening files, running programs, empty the recycle bin, reboot your PC, start the screensaver and much more......"
"HotkeyP does not look like much, but it has a ton of features under the gray hood. Standalone program, no installation. "
To avoid a registry entry you have to unclick the option in its settings for autostart. Forgot to check with RegShot, so have to trust snapfiles. When you click the option for remote control (mouse/remote tab) it will create an extra directory.
Have to say, in my view, such a little program (148KB) using about 10 MBs in resources is a bit much, but I might get addicted to it, nevertheless.
After I let it autostart, it now only uses about 6.5 MB resources.
For me this program turns out to be a keeper. I can call up all my favourite folders quickly with hotkeys now. As it uses many system tasks ready for use with hotkeys it's probably even useful on foreign computers.
Gotta add: after I let HotkeyP autostart, Windows takes quite a bit longer to start. Above all, my firewall (ZoneAlarm) now takes about a minute longer to load and is now the program that gets loaded last, whereas before it was one of the first to load. Maybe it's just a weird coincidence. Am really hooked on that program already.
