Editors' Review

This application promises a better way to manage hot keys, but falls short in a few areas. Qliner Hotkeys opens with a plain window offering a virtual keyboard when you press and hold the Windows key. You'll find brief Tips, but only one provides any specific guidance to configure hot keys through the right-click menu. There's no Help file. The virtual keyboard was nicely designed, but you had to continue holding the Windows key to view it, while the initial window stayed on top. You'll see icons on keys with existing shortcuts, and as promised, you can view a Properties window. Item name, key, and path are displayed. Command line item and Add in are the only type options, and the program doesn't show other keys like Ctrl or Win used for the shortcut. You can drag and drop items to keys and the same fields are displayed. More advanced users may appreciate this freeware program, but novices will be confused by the lack of direction.

"Over 90 easy to use shortcuts can be created!"

The pop-up black virtual keyboard is beautiful, easy to use and just a whole lot of fun! What works best for me is to associate shortcuts with certain keys, like assigning the Recycle Bin to the Delete key, my chess game to the C key, YouTube gets the Y key, MoffSoft Calculator to the Enter key, etc. I don't have any icons on my desktop thanks to Vista Start Menu and QLiner Hotkeys. All of the shortcuts are easy to remember because they are each associated with the Windows key only, and therefore very, very easy to remember. Personally I think QLiner is one of the best programs ever made! Oh, the short tutorial is on their website. I'm using version 2.0.1


Absolutely none!


Qliner is one of my all time favorites. It has to be for me to use it everyday!

"easy solution for hotkey management"

 |  Version: Qliner Hotkeys 1.0.1


- visually easy to use and overview
- hotkeys for tile windows vertically/horizontally available
- easy add custom hotkeys like "safely remove hardware"
- drag&drop possible
- option to adjust keyboard to match your own


- missing video tutorial for designing custom keyboard
- missing FAQ


I am very happy with this tool, before I rarely used hotkeys, but now I can't live without them. Qliner has made it possible to quickly adjust hotkeys at any given time.

The publisher's site has the latest version. There you can view the tutorial to get you started. Very easy to use, just drag and drop your icons on the virtual keyboard. Use the Widows Key+Z to toggle the keyboard for an easy configuration.
