Editors' Review

This application maps your standard 102 keyboard according to your needs, but some of the hot key features didn't work in our tests. KeyExtender has a plain, small, nonresizable interface that is relatively easy to understand and use. The program lets you easily change a key's output through pull-down menus. You also can set a key to perform predefined functions, such as type text, run a key combination, or adjust your volume control.

In our tests, the program proved its efficiency in inserting frequently used text with a single key press as well as in performing shutdown functions and other predefined options. To activate and deactivate the program's effect on your keyboard, you can conveniently define hot keys with the program's Settings option.

However, some of these latter functions didn't perform during our tests; further, without a help guide, the registry map option won't be of much use to novices. Nonetheless, KeyExtender can be very useful to those looking for an efficient key remapping utility, but be aware of possible glitches.

"Good idea, but very unreliable"

August 29, 2012  |  By Bill_Levinson

 |  Version: KeyExtender 3.99

Pros

You can remap your Ctl and Alt keys to avoid twisting your thumb to access, for example, Ctl-z for undo, which reduces the chance of repetitive motion injury. It fixed a problem with my left thumb!

Cons

Unreliable; it often stops working.

Summary

It would be a 5-star product if it worked reliably, but it doesn't. The developers need to put more work into it.

"Waste of time and money"

April 12, 2012  |  By Atticus412

 |  Version: KeyExtender 3.99

Pros

When it works it works well... simple tasks etc

Cons

At best it works 5% of the time, it doesn't start up correctly so you're stuck. Have loaded 3 separate times and after the first few uses it goes back into NOT working again. Don't waste your time or money

Summary

Poor product, for such a simple program, way to many issues
