Process Tamer Opinions on SnapFilesBit of a fraggle having to renew freeware license every six months (or make a financial donation) but well worth the effort.. The configuration menu / interface may prove a bit daunting to anyone not computer literate but the program chugs along quite happily in its 'as supplied' mode - so no real worries there. Do I like it? Yes, very much and have no hesitation in highly recommending it... Well I must admit I was sceptically about this one. Heh! it works like a charm... Wow. This is a nice little utility. It works as advertised. Very, very handy; this is what freeware is all about. In addition it is very stable. One of the problems with freeware is that they can be unstable and rough around the edges--this program is neither... This is just the little program I have been searching for. It does exactly what it was developed to do.. A must have for anyone who wants to speed up their system at crucial times.
TapTap Hotkey Extender is a tiny super-efficient tray-based utility (under <100k) for keyboard fanatics.
It monitors for certain unusual hotkey combinations not supported by most programs (like doubletap right shift key). When such hotkey combinations are detected, TapTap will simulate a normal hotkey that the user has configured.
In this way, you can configure any of your programs to respond to these extended hotkey events as if they supported it natively.
Example: You might have a program which normally triggers on Alt+Ctrl+F5, but you want to configure it to trigger with a double tap of the right control key. You can use TapTap to detect Right Control Doubletap events, and send a Ctrl+Alt+F5 when it does. In this way, you can control your programs the way you want to, and they never know the difference.
TapTap Hotkey Extender is written in lean and mean C++ and highly optimized for insignificant cpu/memory access. It makes no changes to any system files and is completely safe. Comes with an installer but you can unpack the download manually and run it without installing.
