Editors' Review

+
Macros and keyboard shortcuts are nothing new, but many shortcut programs are too complicated for the average user. In contrast, this launcher makes it easy to set up shortcuts that launch applications, visit Web sites, paste saved clipboard data, and even control MP3 players.

Using Keyboard LaunchPad is a cinch. First you create new hot keys with a few mouse clicks, or by just dragging and dropping shortcuts, files, or folders into the main window. Next you assign a key combination that triggers the hot key. Then you apply actions to each hot key from a pull-down list of commonly used actions such as linking to a shortcut or URL. You can add actions to the list with plug-ins once you purchase the full version.

All in all, Keyboard LaunchPad is a practical, powerful, and easy-to-use utility. Our only complaint is that the trial does not provide enough hot keys or actions to test the more advanced features.

"Lightest keyboard shortcut program out there."

January 29, 2010  |  By kielimed

 |  Version: Keyboard LaunchPad 1.6

Pros

Only uses below 1000k memory usage when idle.

Cons

After you use a hotkey assigned, usage jumps to about 6000k. Although, this is still low compared to other hotkey programs. Also, if you open it's configurations, and then close it, it slide back down to <1000k. This should be automatic.

Summary

I like my background programs to be as light as possible. Stardock is one of the best at making programs use less memory and I recommend this program to all.
