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.

"Problems with Hot Keyboard"

November 03, 2007  |  By Urban Mullen

 |  Version: Hot Keyboard Pro 3.1.597

Cons

On October 29, 2007 I purchased Hot Keyboard software from RegSoft and I received notice from RegSoft that the credit card purchase had been approved and that my purchase of the Hot Keyboard product had been completed.

RegSoft's Order Number is10292007-30992-3198. Purchase of Hot Keyboard, Tracking Number 6478266.

However I have not received a registration code from Hot Keyboard. I have made a number of requests for the registration code but have not received any reply from Hot Keyboard.

The Hot Keybord folks are either sound asleep or out of business.

"Pretty good tool"

August 21, 2007  |  By jeffingman

 |  Version: Hot Keyboard Pro 3.1.597

Pros

I had a project involving transferring data from Excel to a proprietary database. Had to do a repetitive series of key strokes. HKP sped up my process dramatically.

Cons

If I set the speed to fast... it made some botched entries... but simply slowing it down solved the problem.

"Extremely helpful program for efficiency"

October 20, 2006  |  By demwiz

 |  Version: Hot Keyboard Pro 3.1.597

Pros

I've used this program for a long time, and I've never found any other program more critical to my daily operations. People constantly comment that I "fly" around the computer as with a keypress combination I can launch any program or folder that I want while others are still searching for the icon or through levels of menus. This program works a lot better than Windows native key-mappings -- and even works while inside full-screen programs (ex: games). As others mentioned it is very light-weight and does what it promises. A lot of advanced functionality (macros, variables, recursive chaining) make this program really powerful - but it is easy to use for just simple purposes too (ex: I map Ctrl+Alt+I to open up (or switch back to) my web browser, Ctrl+Alt+O for e-mail, etc.).

"good for simple, repetitive tasks"

June 13, 2006  |  By cogitomultus

 |  Version: Hot Keyboard Pro 3.1.597

Pros

This product is very flexible considering its simplicity. Power users will find it very helpful in doing find/replace, cut/paste, and repetitive keystrokes one might wish to simplify. The new version includes direct editing of macros, a much more powerful feature

Cons

some bugs found; major ones include the control key getting stuck in the 'on' position, macros set at maximum speed outpacing the CPU and failing to run in entirety* Because of these, non-power users may find this more of a hassle, though simple keystroke reassignments may still prove useful.

*the addition of direct editing in the newest version provides a way to fix this, for advanced users at least.

"Simple and effective, yet not many customizable options"

May 26, 2006  |  By sirryan82

 |  Version: Hot Keyboard Pro 3.1.597

Pros

Lets you add a lot of macros, password protect, and lets you access all documents, folders, etc. on your desktop by right-clicking the system tray icon (VERY handy).

Cons

Not many customizable options ... too basic for an advanced user

"Nicely done"

May 19, 2006  |  By ElegyOfMe

 |  Version: Hot Keyboard Pro 3.1.597

Pros

Good program, doesnt crash, definitly not the memory hog of other programs in its genre. Should really help to people in professional fields that need to acsess things over and over again.

Cons

Windows will already allow you to do much the same thing, and its not of a whole lot of use for an average desktop user.
