"Great, but wish it did more!"

May 05, 2005  |  By zridling

 |  Version: WinKey 2.8

Pros

WinKey, of course, only covers the Win key, but it's still fantastic. I wish someone would develop an app that was as fast as this, and as responsive as this. Even with all the new keyboard shortcut apps out there right now, most are slow compared to WinKey.

Cons

Is now abandonware by Copernic, and only covers the Win key.

"Very useful app for getting around your computer quickly."

April 28, 2005  |  By andy67uk

 |  Version: WinKey 2.8

Pros

Saves time clicking through menus and directories. You can use it to open hidden files, apps and directories. I've used it for years and hate using computers that don't have it.

Cons

Once in a while it can be a little slow on the uptake.

"Forget the start menu!"

February 28, 2005  |  By antdos

 |  Version: WinKey 2.8

Pros

This program makes it so much quicker to access the programs you use regularly - I have bout 50 shortcuts defined, and only have to access the clunky start menu occasionally.

Cons

Slightly slow to load the config program (when you have as many shortcuts as I have!)

"Works exactly as described. Stable. Used it for 3 yrs now."

February 28, 2005  |  By fauxpaux

 |  Version: WinKey 2.8

Pros

Extended Windows Key functionality by being able to assign Win + key combinations to open programs, run scripts, navigate to specific web sites. The power of the Run... functionality with key combinations.

Cons

Hasn't be updated since XP came out. Icons don't support Alpha so they don't display just right in the setup dialog. Also, one or two standard key combinations don't show in the "Standard Combinations" list.
