That works fine, and no I'm not familiar with AutoHotkey programming, but I can see how to add the letters I want and whatnot.
Trouble is, I don't know how to make it save the data recorded and load it the next time, or add modifier and special key counters.
Also, "." "/", quotation marks and probably more characters are considered illegal characters and I can't add them. I basically want kind of every key on the keyboard to be counted, like Keycounter does. Another difference from Keycounter is that I'd prefer it to count, for example, both "/" and "?" as one key.

If I don't know what I'm talking about and what I want is not possible with Autohotkey, I'm sorry. I don't really know what you can and can't do with it. The reason I want this is because I'm getting a new keyboard soon and I want to track from the beginning the amount of each physical keypress and total, out of curiosity, to see how much every individual key lasts, how huge the difference of key usage is, etc.

Edit: I've tried another software called Whatpulse and at first it seemed fine. Then I realized that it doesn't count alt+key combinations, so it's no good.

Edit2: Any help? Should I be posting this on Coding Snacks?

Dear skwire,

hope you are still active with this nice software. Same as StevenM I want to use KeyCounter for scientific purposes, since seperate counting devices are more than 600$ and we need at least three of it. Due to this special application I have two questions:

(1) Would it be possible to include kind of an "undo" function for the last count (preferably by an individual single keystroke on the numblock)?

(2) Is it possible to run this application with an external (wireless) USB numblock?

Great thanks and best regards
