AppsKeyMenu - Custom functions just a key press away

31 Mar 2015, 18:17


AppsKeyMenu is a tool for executing functions through a small popup menu. Simply press the AppsKey on your keyboard, then type in the function name followed by some whitespace and whatever parameter you want to pass into it.

It comes with a few very useful functions, such as "top" to set the active window AlwaysOnTop, and "run" to find and run a program. For example, run notepad++ would automatically find and run "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\Notepad++.exe".

You can create a sub-folder called "Programs" and put .lnk files in it to programs you want to give a custom name to. For example, creating a file such as ssh home.lnk that links to "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\putty.exe" [email protected] -P secretport would make it so that when you AKM the phrase run ssh home, it would launch putty with the specified command line flags.

To add your own functions, create a file called Custom.ahk. This fill will be #Included into AppsKeyMenu on script start. The name of the function will be the AKM command, and the first parameter of the function will receive any given parameter.

nice @GeekDude, I'll have to look into this. Before I do, is this obsolete / replaced by anything else?

Code: Select all

#include <NICE>
msgbox, NICE!
this is a joke, just saying

I can't contain my excitement! :bravo:

This is interesting. There was someone who created a similar menu in a youtube video (creator was Asger Juul Brunshoj). I use it all the time. I'm going to test how similar these two are. Here is the other by the way.
