I'm looking for a program that allows me to set global hotkeys in windows, but that is

  • easy to use if you just want to do something simple, but

  • general and customizable for when you want to do something more specific.

I found the program AutoHotkey, but it seems like it has a somewhat steep learning curve. e.g. you have to script stuff even for simple things.

Clavier +

Hint: To have a program run as Administrator, first make a Windows link to the application, set the link's Advanced property to Run as administrator [sic] and then create a keyboard shortcut to the link (.lnk) file.
