HotkeyP insists in going in with startup appsDoesn't here, on Vista Home Premium, UAC On, from a user account: I just unzipped it into a c:\NoInst\HotKeyP\ directory and it works OK.
I should have given more details - it didnt even ask me - it was WinPatrol that told me it was making a startup entry, when I disallowed this, the programme closed. That happened twice & WinPatrol showed two disabled startup entries
Today it's working okay
Hotkeyz seems to be the most accessible for GUI persons like me It has a nice GUI configuration system, if sometimes a bit tedious when you want to add several things, with parameters etc. I've occasionally had the impression that HotKeyz is a bit slower at some actions than Hoekey, notably at popping up my PopSel menu.
I had major problems with "minimise all windows except current". Didnt minimise to taskbar. but to bottom left corner of screen. Tasskbar (on autohide) refused to show. Had to reboot to clear the mess.. Otherwise seemed okay, especially for someone who barely knows what paramaters are
I can try Hoekey again - the latest update is just an exe. I downloaded an older complete version and replaced the exe, but maybe you have to run the older version first
