  Getting Started

Creating a new hotkey

Run a program event

You can create hotkeys to open a run your favorite programs. This is much faster then to look for the application shortcut in the Windows Start Menu or the desktop. 

You can even set the software to prompt you for the program parameters only when you activate the hotkey. In fact, by using the program hotkey type, you can create limitless types of hotkeys simply by activating other applications' functions with their parameters.

For example, you can set Windows + Alt + P to run Adobe Photoshop.

To create a new hotkey to run a program:

  • Click on the New button.
  • Select "Run a Program" event type. Click Next.
  • Enter or browse for the program location. E.g. "C:\Program Files\Aquarius Soft\PC Keyboard Hotkey Pro\khotkeys.exe"
  • Select the window state when run. Use "Normal window" is unsure.
  • Select the action to perform. Use "default" if unsure.
  • Enter the parameters if needed. Leave it blank if unsure.
  • If you want to enter the parameter only when you activate the hotkey, check the "Prompt for parameter input" check box.
  • Enter the location to start the program in. Leave it blank if unsure.
  • You can preview the event by clicking the Preview button. Click Next.
  • Give a name for the hotkey.
  • Select the key combination for the hotkey. We recommend using Windows + <a keyboard key> for Microsoft applications and Windows + Alt + <a keyboard key> for applications by other companies.
  • Click OK to save the changes.

To test the hotkey, press the key combination. The program will be run.

NOTE: You can drag and drop a program shortcut or program file into the application window  or "Run a Program" page to create a new hotkey that runs the program.
