is it possible to change a laptop's LCD brightness using F2 and F3?

I tried using autohotkey (see http://www.autohotke...orum/topic42443.html), but the code given is complex.

Can someone give some clarification?


P.S. Checked out DimScreen, but that doesn't actually change screen brightness, so battery life doesn't change.


After I installed the AltTab plugin, FARR crashes. When re-run it, it crashed again. Thankfully, after I re-ran it again, it detected that the plugin was causing problems and disabled it.

OS is win7 x64.

Anyone else having this problem?

Find And Run Robot / Shortcut to launch with admin privileges?

In start menu search, there is a handy ctrl+shift+enter to launch the selected program with admin. rights. Is there such a shortcut in FARR?


DesktopCoral / AHK Script to dock windows
« on: September 07, 2009, 01:09 PM »
I wrote a small AHK script that moves the currently active window to the space reserved by DesktopCoral. Thanks to mouser for his help in this script.

You can find it here: http://www.autohotke...6891/onTop/onTop.ahk

The last version of Desktop Coral is required, 1.07.01 - September 6, 2009.

After running the script, just hit Ctrl+Shift+E to move the active window. The hotkey is configurable, just modify the hotkey value in onTop.ini
See this topic for more info.

Bugs reports, suggestions are welcome.

EDIT: Make sure to Desktop Coral first.

Coding Snacks / Maximize Windows "partially" [finished]
« on: August 19, 2009, 05:38 PM »
Is it possible to make a program using AHK such that when I maximizes a window, it doesn't fill the entire screen, rather it fills it partially.

The gadgets sidebar in Windows Vista is like this; when you maximize, the window maximizes up to the sidebar, and doesn't cover it. Something like that, but a user defined region, is what I'm looking for.


Find And Run Robot / Bug in launching 64-bit software.
« on: July 03, 2009, 10:29 PM »
Hi, I encountered a bug while using FARR on a 64bit Windows 7 PC.

It seems that whenever I try to launch a 64bit application (e.g. Zune, Photoshop, VirtualBox), the launching fails. Also the program icon also doesn't show up.

If I right click on the item and select "Copy Target Path (Ctrl+C)", and paste it somewhere, the path is incorrect; it leads to C:\Program Files (x86)\, when it really should be C:\Program Files.

See screenshots, in case I'm not being clear.
