WinSplit Revolution does exactly what you want and pretty much nothing more. It lets you dock windows to any position on your screen using Ctrl + Alt + (numpad key). There's a simple GUI that lets you customize window positions using four variables: horizontal position of the window's top left corner vertical position of the window's top left corner window ...

Been a while since I used it but AHK (Auto HotKey) works well for all of those IIRC, and is very easy to setup but if you want you can do scripting to do fairly complicated tasks. To be specific: It is designed for Windows I recall it as being very easy to configure the basics (you can do a lot more than basics with it if you want but you don't have to) ...

For the most part, Windows itself provides what you want natively. You can define keyboard shortcuts for a command line (in the shortcut editor). The command line can be for the explorer application to open a folder, or for the web browser to open a web page. This meets your requirements except for entering your password. Most of the time a password is ...

@obe recommended NirSoft HotKeysList. I will try to rephrase his recommendations in a form more suitable for this forum: Unfortunately, this program will tell you that a hotkey is in use, but it will not tell you by what process. It could be quite valuable if you paired this with the troubleshooting processes recommended in this SuperUser link. As an ...

I tried Clavier+ which is a very light software (87Ko). It allows a wide variety of functionality, like specific key detection when an other programm is running. And the customization is quite easy. Of course it automatically runs on computer startup. The soft can be installed, but it's not required. So you can easily take it on an USB key. Your key ...

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 ...

You should be able to use AutoHotkey (Free, open-source, Windows), something along the lines of: MinimizeProcess(ExeFile) { Process, Exist, %ExeFile% PID = %ErrorLevel% if (PID = 0) { Return } IfWinExist, ahk_pid %PID% { WinMinimize, ahk_pid %PID% } } !^l:: MinimizeProcess("notepad++.exe") MinimizeProcess("notepad.exe") ; list all your programs that ...

I found NirSoft Hotkey List. It doesn't seem to give a full list on my machine but it gives some. Hope it helps.

I created the following AutoHotKey script ^g:: send, {ctrl down}c{ctrl up} SendInput, <a href="{ctrl down}v{ctrl up}"><img src="{ctrl down}v{ctrl up}" title="source: imgur.com" /></a> return With it, I can highlight a URL and press Ctrl+G and I get a new output text:

Though it's not working via Unicode Sequences as you describe, I'd strongly recommend wincompose: it uses the same compose sequences as there are available natively on Linux, and they are much more intuitive. What's available you can look up in the text file /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose on your Linux machine – or via a GUI (including filtering ...

I wrote a script in AutoHotkey to do this: https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=51201 When you press NumKeyEnter, this script builds then displays a 26*26 grid of buttons (actually AHK edit controls), labelled AA-ZZ, overlaying the whole screen. You can then emulate a mouse-click (or a touchscreen 'touch') at any of those 676 locations by entering ...

Duplicate clones your screen to a connected secondary display, monitor or projector. Extend ...

I have been using AquaSnap for a while and it works for me. It is very cheap to purchase. And I don't work for them. It has numerous options for snapping to sides, corners and to other windows. With all hotkeys easily assignable.

I developed Quick Access Popup using AHK. This freeware lets you collect favorite folders, apps, documents, web links, etc. in a popup menu that you can invoke in any application. If you prefer keyboard shortcuts, you can assign favorites to hotkeys. A hotkey manager lets you review the assigned hotkeys and add/edit/remove hotkeys. The popup menu can ...

You can use HID macros: free works with Windows 7 SP1 x64 Ultimate allows to launch macros by pressing keys on my second keyboard (but pressing the same keys on my first keyboard shouldn't trigger them). More generally, the program allows you to assign a macro to a given key on a specific keyboard (provided that it is recognized as a HID). This utility is ...

A shortcut already exists in Stack Exchange. In your profile page, under Preferences, enable Keyboard Shortcuts Pressing ? to show the help menu reveals: The shortcut for voting up is V U: If it's more convenient to use Ctrl+U, then it can be mapped using an AutoHotKey command: ^u::Send vu

To disable resizing of windows when moving edit \source\WindowPad.ahk to change (Windows Notepad is OK): ; Move and resize. WinMove,,, newx, newy, neww, newh to (note the comments with ; ...

You might wish to take a look at Glipper. Apart from being a "normal clipboard manager", it also supports plugins. According to the linked Wikipedia page, one of those plugins is: A snippet plugin, which lets the user access text snippets they want to use very frequently At least on Ubuntu, this plugin seems to be installed along Glipper automatically (...

Grid control of Windows, but you control the clicking with your voice, not the keyboard. Similar question, but the three main answers are voice controlled. An edit of one question, however, pointed to a dead website with software that was allegedly what you wanted. A quick Google search found Mouse Grid 1.0, which allegedly does what you want. Good luck!

It can easly be done with AutoHotkey. AutoHotkey (AHK) is a free, open-source macro-creation and automation software for Windows that allows users to automate repetitive tasks. It is driven by a scripting language that was initially aimed at providing keyboard shortcuts, otherwise known as hotkeys, that over time evolved into a full-fledged scripting ...

Ditto Ditto is a replacement for window's standard clipboard manager and has some pretty powerful features including a copy history and the ability for 10 shortcuts for the previous ten things copied. Download you can start over here http://ditto-cp.sourceforge.net/Help/DittoGettingStarted.htm

i3 i3 is a tiling window manager. i3 has user-definable modes and VIM inspired keyboard shortcuts. I like it as it's very well documented and the config is easy to mod (changing key-usage, adding modes, etc.). I chose it over xmonad almost on a coin flip (both tiling wms), weighted by the fact that xmonad config looks more complex (it's Haskell based). I'...

I used AutoHotkey to solve my issue. The point of all this was to take a Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic mouse and turn the Windows button into a forward page button. Here is the much complicated script that made it all possible: Rwin::XButton2 Basically it turns your right Windows button into a forward page button, but who uses the right Windows button ...

AutoHotkey. It let's you record key presses, and then you can see what the name for that specific key is, and bind to it with an AutoHotkey script. I used to do this several years back.

I found WinCompose [GitHub] that fulfills my needs. has a configurable "compose" key which I'll refer to as ♥ in the following. I'm using Pause now. has a total of 2200 combinations and they are easier to remember than NumLock numbers, e.g. ♥<- for the Unicode arrow ← or ♥e" for the diaeresis e: ë has no impact on the language bar and on Ctrl+Space (at ...

Finally a solution exists, its name is AutoHotkey. I wrote myself an AutoHotkey script like below. You have just to release Ctrl (and on US keyboard layouts or on numpads also Shift) after pressing "u" and finally press Ctrl again to insert the character: ^+u:: SendInput, u Input, num, V L5,{LControl}{RControl} SetFormat, IntegerFast, Hex ...

Windows support this for as long as I remember, but you need to enable it in registry with: reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Input Method" /v EnableHexNumpad /t REG_SZ /d 1 Then you can type µ with Alt + + + 0 0 b 5 ሴ with Alt + + + 1 2 3 4 etc.

A more general tool that can do the job would be AutoHotKey. But for a simpler, more mouse-only oriented tool, you can try Auto Mouse Click Generator Both are free and both will do the job.

The reviews you linked are quite non-biased and they say most of things you need to know. Based on them you can create comparison matrix by yourself, it will be accurate. My guidance for you is this: AutoIt is more advanced in general automation, i.e. if you want to automate some installer, recognizing content of its windows and clicking buttons to proceed....
