Editors' review

While working on your PC, you often do the same tasks every day, such as opening the same documents. Hot Keyboard Pro lets you create a macro to trigger these repetitive actions with a single keystroke. You can assign each macro its own hot key and schedule it to run automatically. Automated actions include opening a document, launching a program, and automatically replacing a string of symbols as you type in any Windows application. You can record and save a series of keystrokes and mouse movements and run several macros in a chain or call your own menu of macros. The program makes adding new commands a breeze. For example, you can highlight some text and press a hot key to create a new macro for any of the text-related action types. The program produced no noticeable slowdown on our PC. Also, Hot Keyboard Server lets several PCs share and exchange macros. The midrange features and ease of use make Hot Keyboard Pro suitable for power users and professionals who don't want to lay down big money for a corporate-level solution.

    "5 stars. Copied+pasted from Skype to Excel in 5 minutes"

    February 05, 2014   |   By PoorStudent2012

    Version: Hot Keyboard Pro 4.3.40

    Pros

    Can quickly make new macro to copy contact information from Skype and paste into Excel.
    Done in 5 minutes for over 100 contacts.
    (I used to make macros with other Macro software that cost over 1000 dollars.)

    Cons

    In edit sequence mode, I do not see clearly which action is being done on Skype and which action is being on Excel.
    In edit sequence mode, I can not temporarily ignore an event (called a step in other software). I can delete that event out. (But, if I am wrong about deleting that event, I may have to remake a new macro to put that step back into the existing macro (I am referring to something like REM COMMAND in making .bat file (batch file), just to ignore an event for now, keep the step but do not run the step).

    Summary

    I rate this as 5 stars because of ease of use, wide usefulness, good ideas and functions for software that cost just $29.99. Perfect for macro tasks. Please keep up the good work, thank you very much.
