Thanks for the replies folks. 

I have hundreds (thousands?) of sites bookmarked in Chrome.   Whenever I go to cull out the ones I don't need anymore, I either get distracted or overwhelmed and give up.   I was thinking that it would be great if there was a tool that would let me delete all the ones that haven't been used in 2 years, or 1 year.   It would be good if I could even just delete all the ones that no longer point to anything valid. 

Do you guys have any tips for this?

Does anyone know if there is a place to download Ethervane Echo?  Trangulos' site seems to be down.

I wonder it anyone has tried to make an app that records when a hotkey press happens (or even invokes it), then records any new Windows processes/treads/etc that follow it immediately in time?  Then it could make a "best guess" at what the hotkey was assigned to. 

Of course Windows wouldn't like this because it would look like a virus. 

Ethervane ActiveHotkeys does seem to work (Win 10)

General Software Discussion / Tool to find where a hotkey press goes?
« on: February 03, 2022, 05:00 PM »
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C stopped working in one of my apps.  I think it's because I probably assigned it to a different app and can't remember which..  :-\   Is there a tool that can "detect" which app is using the keypress?  I see some info about a tool called Spy++, but I think you have to have Visual Studio installed to use that.  Do you guys know of any other utilities to do this?  I'm on Win 10.

EDIT:  I figured it out...  I had an AHK thing set to that hotkey.

Insistently, I don't think it's possible to "see" where hotkeys go in Windows.  Nirsoft has an app that will tell you which hotkeys are free vs used.  It can't tell you what they are assigned to though.

My own app
does something like this.  Really it is more useful when a person wants to do what you describe, but also works from multiple offices, and needs to write about specific people (clients, students, etc).  It inserts name and gender pronouns into the boilerplate text. 

Really you should try just making your own AutoHotkey setup with a bunch of hotstrings.

I also found a couple of things.  This one
seems promising.  Apparently you can set it as the default browser in Windows, it then directs commands as needed.  I couldn't get it to work though, then, while messing with the icon-chooser, I completely broke it.  Now it just crashes over and over.  I even killed and deleted it, and rebooted, and redownloaded it.  Still it crashes. 

This also seems interesting:
it links to this $7 Windows Store app

Not sure I want to pay $7 for an app that might not even work though...

LATER....   Well I took a leap of faith and bought/installed Account Surfer.   It seems to work well.  You do indeed set it as your default browser, then it redirects as needed.  I'm not detecting any sluggishness when opening links.  There are still 15 (yes 15!) Chrome processes running in the background even though I don't have Chrome open.  ...I suppose that's to be expected from Chrome though.

Good thoughts, but I think  Wraith is correct.  Using mailto wouldn't work. 

I'll investigate this more.  I couldn't find anything useful in the above-mentioned AppData folder.  Come to think of it, I didn't think to check the Chrome Add-in store. 

I wonder if the setting is in here:
C:\Users\steve\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

That's a really old post you've referenced...
Sorry about that.  I even quoted the post and still didn't notice the date.  Thanks for sharing your stuff!   :D

I suspect that this is not even possible, but I thought I'd post anyway -- just in case. 

I use Chrome as my web browser.  Most of my bookmarks etc. are in my main personal profile. At work though, when people share links with me, I have to be in my Google account from work.   You switch profiles by clicking your avatar in the top/right of the Chrome window.   It's also possible to make Desktop links directly to each profile.  In my case the two link targets are:
C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome_proxy.exe  --profile-directory=Default
C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome_proxy.exe"  --profile-directory="Profile 1"

The problem is that, if you don't specify (by using one of the above links), Chrome will always open a link using the most recently-accessed profile.  So multiple times per day, I'll open a link at work that someone sends me, then Chrome will pop up in my personal profile and give me an error message that I don't have permission to access the file.  It's super-annoying! 

What I'd like is some way to "tell" Chrome that if I open an Outlook email link, use my work profile.  I guess that would need to be some kind of back-running utility that stays on all the time?  I don't know.  Maybe an Outlook add-in is what I need.

Hey I have a ton of small apps at
can you tell me what you guys think
(just added the SignupRecordTracker and the PowerNamer

Is the link correct?  I'm getting:

This site can’t be reached
Check if there is a typo in

Hi Mouser.  Feature Request for CHS:  Ability to assign a hotkey to the command "Stack operations > Paste entire stack as one text block."  Actually, maybe another hotkey for  "Stack operations > Paste entire stack using Tabs."

I noted you already have one for  "Stack operations > Set stack marker," so that's cool. 

Thanks for considering this!   

If you want to browse/manage your google docs, then there would need to be a web browser component I guess -- yes?

At this point I figure every day on the right side of the dirt is a good one.
This is gonna be my new motto.

Ah yes -- Very nice.  Thanks Mouser!

I also just experienced this at home on my laptop.  FARR had apparently been positioned on the second monitor when last used.  I was not able to get it to work until I got to my office and plugged in the second monitor.  I do have the "when appearing, center" option checked. 

Is v2.239.03 the newest?

A year since my last post on this thread and I still use RaptureReplica on a regular basis.  I wanted to share a tip that I recently learned regarding scaling.  Lot's off apps can have problems if Windows is set to scale fonts at 125% (or anything other than 100%).    This can sometimes be fixed by locating the executable (in this case RaptureReplica.exe) and changing the properties.  (see also image).  Right-click the exe, choose Properties at the bottom of the context menu, then go to the Compatibility tab, then click "Change high DPI settings" then checkmark to Override and let the app be in charge of the scaling.

So the NANY 2022 Wrap-Up is linked on the website, but it's empty. Nice.
What do you mean ? I don't understand !!!!!
At the top of the webpage click 'Software' then 'NANY.'   It lists a summary of the NANYs over the years but the 2022 one is empty.  From looking at the old ones, I think maybe Mouser does a written summary of everything(?)   I think he just hasn't had a chance to do the 2022 summary yet(?)  IDK. 

Mouser, you should put a link directing people to the relevant forum thread.... 
EDIT:  As I look closer, the sidebar does already have a link pointing here.   :Thmbsup:

Things got away from me.  I'm actually rather tired of computer stuff in general and preferring to spend my free time outside in the woods.
Yes -- Time well spent!

You are most welcome Relipse!   Hopefully it will be useful for somebody.
