    Try something like FingerTips if you really want to. But it's not secure at all, so I suggest you use a password manager instead (e.g. Lastpass). – Jan Doggen Nov 3 '14 at 14:21

    If you use voice recognition software Dragon NaturallySpeaking (Windows/Mac, non-free), you can create a voice command to paste some text, it's straightforward to do. – Franck Dernoncourt Nov 3 '14 at 15:07

AutoHotKey

You can use AutoHotKey to bind any key combination to perform an action. In case of pasting text, you can use the Send command. Here is an example:

#g::Send p4ssw0rd

Save the above command in an ahk file and run. The hotkey Win+g now binds to the string p4ssw0rd. You can learn how to further configure the hotkeys in the tutorial

Note that this is not a safe way to store your passwords, since anyone using your computer could paste them in any text field.
