The Big Red Button

By WonderTech Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Assign hot keys to open executable files using this simple handy application, but some stability issues hamper its effectiveness. The Big Red Button is itself an executable file that creates an icon in the system tray, which unveils a simple interface with check boxes for the function keys 1 through 10. There are only two buttons, one to assign executables to a function key and one to exit. It's easy to assign a program to a key with the program's browsing tool. Unfortunately, not all of the hot keys worked after saving the selections, and The Big Red Button occasionally failed to open when the executable was run. This freeware could be beneficial to all users for quick access to programs, but its sporadic performance limits its usefulness.
