Running multiple commands with one alias
« on: May 21, 2008, 12:09:42 AM »
I want to run multiple commands, apps, or docs with onyl one alias

For example I want myalias to run all those lines below all together

-do search *.cfg
-notepad.exe
-goto www.yahoo.com

run multiple commands is a long-asked feature request ...

some suggestions however :

  • there is a launch all command (using modifier keys)... never used it !
  • you can put your multiple in a .bat file or autohotkey script

BUT you will not be able to run a dosearch command and a regular run (file or url)
i don't think there is a way to do it for the moment...
you'll have to ask mouser to make sure ;)

personally i think multiple runs (for one alias result) would be very handy to provide feedback...and customize an alias ...

say when you search google, you want a special sound or a visual feedback on screen :
$$c | http://www.google.com/search?q=$$c&btnG=Search /ICON=icons\google.ico ### playsound ### osd

that would make FARR a bit more fun to use

cheers, nitrix

I guess making a bat file is my best guess then at the moment.

Thanks btw mouser!

If i understand this properly, it means that i can and will be eventually able to access Firefox bookmarks (not IE) with one shortcut key?   :tellme:
