CNET Editors' review
Aquarius Soft PC Keyboard Hotkey Pro lets you create keyboard shortcuts that perform the specific functions you desire.
The program's easy-to-use interface offers preloaded samples and a wizard-like approach for creating keyboard shortcuts. You can set your hot keys to perform functions, such as type text, clean up your PC, perform shutdown actions, and run a Control Panel applet. In our tests, PC Keyboard Hotkey Pro proved its efficiency and was able to execute all actions fairly quickly. To activate and deactivate the hot key's effects, simply check or uncheck it from your list of personal hot keys. Hot keys that you create work systemwide, which means that they work regardless of the window or application you're currently working in.
Novices should find this program easy enough to use, even without a help guide. Overall, multitaskers and time-pressured users will benefit from what this 28-day trial program offers.
