Remapping F-keys (f1-f12) shortcuts
« on: October 12, 2008, 03:52:20 AM »
Hi there,

I'm looking for a very simple program which can do the following:

- Set shortcuts on keys f1 to f12, overiding what it does in windows.
- Shortcuts to Programs and Folders
- Shortcut to volume up down and mute.
- Nice Layout
- Windows XP Systray Icon. Like the keyboard icon, from where you can run it.

How much will it cost btw to let someone make this app?

Thanks for you input. I gave it a look, and yes, the layout sucked. I would like to have it a little more accessible. Can someone write one for me?

I'm pretty sure there's a good-looking key remap utility, I just can't remember its name!  :mad:
It even resembles the mac interface, and shows you your whole keyboard and the application associated with each keystroke.. Does anyone know what I'm referring to?

http://majorgeeks.co.../KeyTweak_d4161.html   looks like another option, not nearly as good looking but its a lot smaller.  Maybe worth a try.

The Wonderful Icon can do everything you want. I used it for years, but then I found Autohotkey... ;-)

The Wonderful Icon 2.2 is a small Windows utility that resides in your PC's taskbar tray. Try it and you'll be hooked!

TWI has lots of wonderful features. With it, you can:

Assign hotkeys for common tasks such as minimize windows, restart Windows, etc.
Minimize programs onto the taskbar tray instead of just onto the taskbar, either by a keystroke or by right-clicking a window's Minimize button with your mouse
Configure a menu of easily-accessible commands
Increase or decrease speaker volume with the press of a button
Automatically run programs at start-up, and hide them, minimize them to the taskbar tray, etc.
Lots more!
Oh yeah, and it's free!
