Thanks ewemoa.  Both are very helpful.

General Software Discussion / Next FARR version for Android
« on: December 24, 2012, 05:37 PM »
OK I know it sounds crazy (and downright dumb) but what are the chances of a creating a partially functioning version of FARR for a smartphone?

I just switched from WebOS (on HP Pre 3) to Android OS and having difficult time finding simple launchers or file finders.

Closest Android apps I have found so far are Fastrun (Russian) and Simple File Finder.  Any suggestions???


I tried without success to install the FARRWindowSearch plug-in and now whenever I launch FARR I get the following error message.  How can I get rid of this? :(

"This application has failed to start because PROPSYS.dll was not found.  Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

Thanks, Lanux.   :Thmbsup:

This is cool.  Can someone write an AutoHotkey script to do this?

Justice, can you add a setting or tick box to allow one show *.exe files as an alternative to or in addition to *.ahk files?

might try something like this (same idea as suggested by rjbull & jdd) - the cables shown in that TC link seem to be focused on copying stuff from older pc to newer one - in fact at least one of them seem to simply start copying stuff automatically according to an amazon review. They all work with their own software

FYI  There is no 'special' software required with most of the USB datalink connections that are designed for this purpose, such as the one I mentioned earlier. You should be able to use any flavor of Windows Explorer software.

With XP, the drivers are loaded automatically when you connect the computers with the USB cables and, can copy or backup or move files from one to the other.  Nothing should start copying or moving files automatically unless you set it up to intentionally do that.

You do not need to mess around with Internet connections or IP addresses, or work groups or pinging or any of this other stuff.

Tomos, this is what I use.  Simple USB to USB connection to join 2 computers using an SIIG Data Link Adapter #JU-CSL012.  Similar products are made by other companies.

Product (no longer made but still available on line):

Please give a thumbs up if you would like this feature added.  :Thmbsup:


I am trying to simulate/define hotkeys that normally require simultaneous pressing of three keys (e.g. Ctrl-Alt-Delete).  I would like to launch these hotkeys using a NON-SIMULTANEOUS pressing of two keystrokes. 

So in this example, I would like to define a sequence of two NON-SIMULTANEOUS (e.g. 'k' followed by 'j') to simulate 'Ctrl-Alt-Delete'. Do you follow?

Can I do this in TapTap Hotkey Extender?

skwire, Thank you. That is what I was trying to do.  I am not trying to create hotstrings. 

The reason behind this query is that I am not very adept at using a keyboard.  For me, hot keys that require 3 keys pressed simultaneously (or even two) is very cumbersome.  Since I use a lot of hotkey combinations, the ability to create some using a one-hand 'tap tap' procedure is very powerful. 

Fortunately, I have two hands.  I can see how this would be a great tool for a person with one.



Can TapTap Hotkey Extender be used to simulate three simultaneous keystrokes such as Ctrl-Alt-F4 by tapping with one hand?  I couldn't seem to get the syntax right in the ini file.


skwire,  That worked like a charm! :Thmbsup:

Can you show me the script to use kj to simulate control-Alt-F4?


I should have been more specific.  What I want to do is to be able to type kk to simulate control-Alt-F4.

16 it correct to assume that it is not possible to create a hotkey combination in Autohotkey that is based on pressing two keys in rapid succession?

Is it possible to create a hotkey that does not require simultaneous pressing of keys?

For example, I would like to create a hotkey combination that is based on pressing two keys in rapid succession like "KK" or "KL".


If the drive is write protected, would I have to worry about any of these infections?

Is the usb drive big enough to hold two copies of what you need? If so keep a fully archived passworded copy and each time you sit down to a new PC extract the contents of that archive. That way you can be sure the programs themselves remain uninfected.

Would I be able to do this on a write-protected usb drive?

I use Keypass every day, and loaded the portable version on my usb mainly because it stores my passwords.  But what protection does that provide against keyloggers or screenwatchers?

p.s.  All the 'important' information on the usb is stored in encrypted True Crypt hidden volumes, in the event I were to lose the usb stick.

So, I assume that if I use a write-protected usb drive, I should be safe from viruses and malware attacking the usb. 

Then I would be susceptible to keyloggers and screen watchers.  However, if I use an on-screen virtual keyboard, and software that blocks screen watching, would I still be vulnerable?

This may sound ridiculous but what is the danger due to infection of a usb drive by malware?  Would that affect my use of portable Firefox? 

To be safe, I could just throw out the $4.99 USB drive when I get home, rather than connect it to my computer. 

I will be traveling without my laptop and was planning to bring a USB drive with portable apps including Firefox and a VPN client. 

If I run these applications from my USB drive in a public computer in a lobby or Internet cafe, will it leave traces of personal information that I use to log into accounts on Firefox (e.g., gmail other web mail, or OWA)?   I also was thinking of connecting by VPN to my employers servers.  How safe is all this???


General Software Discussion / Re: Shortcut Creator

Contro, I had a similar request, for exactly the same purpose you described - to avoid right click, send to, desktop shortcut.  Skwire created an AutoHotkey script that I run in FARR when I want to create a desktop shortcut to avoid right click.  The zip file called '' is described in the following thread:

My experience is that it takes forever to upload files of any substantial size using a cable Internet or dsl connection, which is what I have.  How can you do that effectively without FTP?  Am I missing something here?
