[Ethervane] ActiveHotkeys...

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

[Ethervane] ActiveHotkeys...

#1 Post by Onesimus Prime » Mon Mar 15, 2010 5:24 pm

[Mod note: official forum topic for Ethervane ActiveHotkeys database entry: https://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1770]

Description: ActiveHotkeys shows a list of all active (registered) or inactive (available) global hotkeys in Windows. (Unfortunately, Windows does not allow for detecting which application has registered a particular shortcut, so that feaure is not included.)
Category: System - Keyboard/Mouse
Writes settings to: Application folder (when started with /localconfig switch)

According to the author's post here, you can launch it with the "/localconfig" switch to write the app's .ini file in the application directory (portable use). Without this switch, I believe the .ini file is written to %AppData%\Ethervane\ActiveHotkeys\

Definitely a needed program. As I continue to do computer customization of one kind or another, knowing what shortcuts are taken up and even better what groups of shortcuts are available is a big help.

Old topic update: ActiveHotkeys (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1770) was recently mentioned, so I think some info updating is in order...
http://www.tranglos.com/activehotkeys/ wrote:Ethervane ActiveHotkeys detects what global keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys) are currently registered on the computer by various applications. This helps you determine which hotkeys are in use, and which are still available. All possible combinations of Alt, Ctrl, Shift and Win modifiers with regular typewriter keys are supported.
Please take note of the following warning:
