WinHotKey
Categories:

WinHotKey allows you to assign "hot keys" that do various things. Actions that can be done with a hotkey are:

  1. Launch a Program
  2. Open a document
  3. Open a folder
  4. Automatically type something Sorry, this feature doesn't work on Vista, Windows 7, or later
  5. Control other windows on the screen

The main goal of this tool is to be easy to use. There are many other hotkey programs out there, but most of them do not provide a sufficient level of "ease of use". This walks the user through the options, while remaining a powerful tool.

When running, the program sits in the system tray. Double-clicking on the system tray icon will bring up the main window.

Here's a screen-shot of the main window:

Works on Windows versions up through and including Windows 7. While not a 64-bit program itself, it works fine on 64-bit editions.

Windows 8 Note: WinHotKey works on Windows 8, however Windows itself has reserved most of the Win+X combinations for itself. It is strongly recommended that you use the "Win" key plus another key, such as "Ctrl" to assign as hotkeys, such as Win+Ctrl+X. Using plain "Ctrl" or "Alt" without also using the "Win" key will cause conflicts with most other applications.

Download

Here's the MD5 and download link:

4239a9eaaf6b90e9cbb9f074ef1ceccd ..... WinHotKey0.70.exe

When downloading, I get an error message that the setup is corrupt, and I can't proceed.

Your assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Please try to download it again. I have verified that the setup program is working correctly.

PS. It's always a good idea to try to download something again if it appears corrupted.

I download it by IDM 5.19 when downloading it paused, I wait a moment and it working continue

The "type text" feature does not work in Windows 7, 32-bit or 64-bit. All the other features appear to work. Unfortunately, the "type text" is the feature I need. Nice working and looking product other than that.

Unfortunately "type text" was a tricky thing to implement and is hit or miss depending on your system and the application you're trying to type into. You might want to look at "AutoHotKey" which may work better for that function.

I installed the program by running it as administrator and it works just fine. My OS is: windows 7 pro 64-bit.
This is a great program.

I loaded the program in Win7 Home 64-bit. It works fine with actions, like opening programs and minimising windows, but it won't do the one thing I really wanted it for - type text. I've tried it in Outlook, Notepad and the address bar in Firefox and nothing happens.

The auto-type feature is tricky to get right and doesn't work in all applications. I recommend using AutoHotKey (http://www.autohotkey.com/) which has much better support for this feature.

I really enjoy WinHotKey, but I have one puzzlement.
It does not seem to work with NumPad 5.
I have tried the combinations of Win NumPad 5, Win Alt NumPad 5, and Alt NumPad 5.

In NoteTab I get either a 5 or a ?.

When I use ActiveHotkeys, NumPad 5 does not show up.

I have tried this with both a text typing assignment and a vbs application assignment.

If I exit WinHotKey, ActiveHotkeys does not show any other user for the NumPad 5.

This is an interesting bug. Based on a few searches, it seems to be a bug in Windows. It looks like it will work correctly when holding down SHIFT when pressing the Win+5 combination. It looks like something we will have to live with until Microsoft fixes the bug.

I have been using a different Hokey program, but it has significant cpu overhead. WinHotKey looks and feels much lighter. I'm trying to use the type text feature with embedded control keys, for example "test [ctrl-v] test" which would allow me to use the windows paste feature as part of the generated text. Anyway to do this?

There is a way to do this by updating the registry directly, but I cannot support that. I recommend looking at AutoHotKey which can do a lot of the more complex things like that.

I installed WinHotKey before reading all the user reviews. I too cannot utilize the Type Text feature (64-bit Win 7). I have uninstalled WinHotKey via the Windows Control Panel program app. Unfortunately, it remains in the tray. Of couse I can turn off notifications etc. for tray icons but how do I completely remove WinHotKey?

It should have shut down before you did the installation. To completely remove it, reinstall it then right click and exit from the tray icon. Then go through the uninstall process again.

Great tool! Will blog about it if you can tell me how to put in the ENTER key into a "type the text" string

Need to put ENTER key into a macro... how do I do it???

It might work if you edit the registry and in the "processed" value for the hotkey, use a ~ where you need to have the Enter key. However, I don't know if this will work. If you need this kind of capability, I recommend using AutoHotKey instead.
