Signo provides a simple set of hot keys to add speed and efficiency to everyday computer tasks. By including an ample supply of premade hot key combinations and giving you the freedom to easily make your own, this program quickly establishes it rightful place in any PC toolkit.

The program's interface is welcoming, with simple onscreen instructions that make learning hot key combinations quick and easy. We like how Signo stays embedded in your toolbar and therefore is always at your fingertips. We were able to either scroll through a menu of commands ranging from opening programs like Gmail and Notepad to saving an item to a particular file or folder. The hot key combinations are listed directly next to each command. Knowing and using these key patterns proved particularly useful with saving, copying, and other common but time-consuming functions. The high point, however, was the capability to design your own hot key commands, though this feature works best for entering text and not for performing commands. Signo was immediately responsive and felt like it would shave valuable seconds off these repetitive tasks. No matter how we used it, Signo seemed capable of saving time and effort and smoothing the work flow.

Signo is a free program. Its ability to quickly perform hot key tasks and help you design your own make this a great program that we recommend.

Developer's Description

The Signo tool is an impressively complete hot key manager that can handle pretty much anything you can think of doing with either hot keys or text keys and provides a large range of built-in functionality you can easily leverage to boost your productivity. Signo tool runs silently in your tray bar and allows you managing multiple hot keys and their association with various actions. In addition, the tool allows defining multiple text keys which are short words, 10 characters or less, that start with a #. Upon the word being typed the tool will automatically delete it and trigger the appropriate action. This is currently supported for the Text and HTML actions. That same functionality is used with the Auto actions, which allow defining a list of corrected/correcting pair of words, for the automatic correction of your words as you type.
