Windows Logo key shortcut keys in FARR?`
« on: December 20, 2006, 09:51:56 PM »
Is there a plan to add support for the windows logo key in farr for hotkey combos? I would love to be able to launch FARR with the WIN+Q shortcut key, which would totally replace the run dialog for me in 99% of cases.

Thoughts? It currently supports other keys (ctrl+alt+shift), just not this one.

Yeah, but I really dont want another process :-/ Otherwise I would be using something similar.

Hopefully mouser can work this in for 2.0 final :)

You could use mouser's tap tap which was made for these situations. It also takes very little mem :)

I'd be inclined to just use the windows key for FARR :P I can't remember the last time I actually used the start menu . . .

Josh: then try making an entry in the mantis so that mouser can keep track of this..

also to jgpaiva, can you post your Farr's Winkey script here for future references? :)
