Note: Download page is https://www.deeproot.co.uk/extrakeys_downloads.html for the .zip file of the latest version of Pro (as Pro is free and portable as of 2.2.4, there is no need for the non-Pro version, imo)

New Keysets in the version 2.2.6 Pro version

Polytonic Greek (for Classical and Medieval Greek)

Extra Keys Pro 2.2.5 is a maintenance release, to fix problems with some Windows 10 systems that do not always open the window.

They say if previous versions work well, there is no need to update.

A very useful tool! It works exactly as claimed, is completely portable and runs from a single executable file. I keep a shortcut to it in my startup folder so that it's available in my system tray at all times, and I never close it.
