If you are using Vista, you might try looking for a sidebar gadget that can do what you are looking for.

Another option is a Yahoo Widget Engine widget.
These can be made to hide on a separate overlay pulled up with a hotkey, or can be forced to stay visible on the desktop.
I don't know if there is one that is directly what you want, but these are often fairly customizable with respect to colors and things as you asked.

You might want to give the EXE a look with one of these first.

One way menus can be stored is as resources in the EXE.
If its done this way, there should be a entries for the menus; however, there are lots of other ways to make menus work too.

Its been a while since I've used either, so I don't remember how easy it is to copy the info out, but I think you can save it as a text file or copy and paste it or something.

From the program side, I have an idea of how to go about it, but don't really have time to mash it out right now.
For the other coders out there: with WINAPI you can use GetCursorPos to get the cursor position, then WindowFromPoint to get the hWnd for the window under that point.  From there, you can do GetMenu to get the hMenu.  Then, just recurse through the menu structures to print out the names.

Hope this helps.


Is there maybe a way to easily change the keys used?

There isn't any way from the interface, but its easy enough to edit the script.
Just open up the .ahk file with notepad.

You will see a few lines that look like this:

Change that to whatever you want the hotkey to be.
# stands for the windows key, ! is alt, ^ is control, + is shift.
If you want a letter on the keyboard, you can use that directly.
The special keys that have the names are listed here


edit: fixed typo as pointed out by tomos

Oh I'm sorry... I didn't mean to suggest that you move your applications from monitor-to-monitor.
If you deactivate then reactivate the monitor dimmer, its the active window and you can use the MoveToMon hotkeys to move the dimmer between monitors.

A different icon would be nice -- I have trouble coming up with that kind of thing  :)

A suggestion on moving between the two monitors, and the one I use (because I already use the program for other things)

I'm glad other people are finding use for this -- I knew I couldn't be the only one that could need it!
