Find And Run Robot / Re: Assign hotkeys to user-toolbar items
« on: July 25, 2017, 05:44 AM »
Thanks - I have used a variety of launchers in the past and mosten often got annoyed when I had to re-configure them after major updates of linked software changed pathnames ("abc v12\" to "abc v13\") etc., so I really like the dynamic natur of FARR (+ a few static links to a favorites that I can take care of to maintain). So I'm not sure how it'll end - but I'll go & try it out! ;-)

Yeah, but that's still 1 keystroke too much! ;-)

I think I'll go with skajfes' first suggestion :-)

Honestly, I don't see the benefit in that....
I would rather create an autohotkey script that would just launch stuff with a hotkey...

Well, here's some benefit:
  • don't want to install AH. Been there, done that - generally want to limit the # of tools I'm using
  • You are right, that would be two keystrokes to launch the "top favs" on the toolbar. Still that's more convenient than a alt-space and then having to move hand over to the mouse and do a mouseclick, and it is less keystrokes than alt-space and a few keystrokes to find the tool and another one to launch it  8)

this does not work for menu items with an icon
Thanks, but I'm linking to exe's that have an icon, so won't be able to use this trick :(

I've waited with this suggestion for a few weeks, wanting to see if I would still find it valid...and I do :-)

I would find it very useful if it was possible to assign shortcuts to the items on the user-toolbar- would help to make it even more kbd-friendly ;-)
