Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This feature-rich tool executes numerous tasks with simple hot-key combos. Hotkeycontrol's well-organized interface lets you quickly define 50 hot keys to run EXE programs, files, and folders. It also lets you assign hot keys to display images, run plug-ins, and initiate macros for repetitive keyboard and mouse actions. In addition, you can assign system tasks such as shutting down, minimizing and maximizing windows, setting volume controls, and controlling media player functions. The settings can be made available to all a machine's user accounts along with a convenient, though unfortunately unprintable, list of hot-key assignments. If you don't already have it, Hotkeycontrol requires you to download Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0. But aside from that minor caveat, it's an excellent choice for developing and executing hot-key commands.

Developer's Description

Hotkeycontrol is the award winning and easy to use solution for creating keyboard shortcuts for routine tasks like opening files, changing system volume, controlling display brightness, typing frequently used text, controlling active windows and recording macros. Volume and brightness level are shown smoothly on screen similar to OS X on Macbooks. And, a handy Hotkeypanel ensures that you never need to remember all your hotkeys by letting you execute them quickly from a single easily accessible window. In addition to normal combination hotkeys, you can use single keys such as function or number pad keys. Additionally, you can remap your keyboard layout at a system level and customize your keyboard's key configuration to improve your productivity.
