Settings does not provide a way to prevent it from always starting at system start-up.

When one installs it as English as per system language setting it loads de help PDF on pressing Help button... Fail,

When creating NEW shortcut and there is a language to select instead of selecting the installed and system language it auto selects de to translate to and area to save snapshots into. The program is supposed to Multilanguage aware yet at every opportunity it chooses de rather than selected EN language as displayed in upper right of the window next to the minimise button. Needs significantly more work and making the programs language selection consistent across the program. Why can I proceed through steps 1 through 3 even if I do not select a target or a key short cut combination and even press the APPLY button? Currently there is nor enforced workflow and therefore no sanity checking of user choices. Was this how the developer wants the program to fail to function?

This looks like a very useful app. I use Keybreeze to accomplish the same things (and more). Otherwise, I'd grab this offer.

Both the giveaway and the trial only have help files in English and in Turk. There is a de.pdf and a tr.pdf in the programme folder. No en.pdf.

Requires registration at sofware website. Pass for me.
Having to keep up with every website that would require registration/id/password is too much. If this is "FREE licensed software" there should be nothing else required other than a download and activation.

FYI, I did not register. I just filled in a name and a working mail address to receive the user ID. You need that for the activation.

It is quite common here that you have to provide a mail address to get a licence key.

gergn, that was registering! proof it was, was that you were able to login to registered customer area and download full version.

TK, I am not a lawyer and English is not my mother's language, but I associate the word "registering" with storing information in a register for more than the few minutes it took them to send me a mail to an address, that stopped functioning almost immediately after I received their mail and I had clicked on the download link to receive the software.

Google says to register is to enter or to record on an official list or directory. I did enter information, but did they store it for more than a few minutes? It is of no use anymore.

I've used shortkeys lite for years to shortcut entering repetitive text and codes and wondered if this can do the same. it does so happy to have a fully functioning program that does this.

I use the freeware AnyHotkey. The following script is meant for daily use on all my Windows machines. It works in all applications:

#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
RegRead, ProductName, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, ProductName

^!d:: ; ^ = Ctrl, ! = Alt, so the script is executed with the key combination Ctrl-Alt-D
FormatTime, CurrentDateTime,, ' created on '%A_ComputerName%' on 'dddd dd MMMM yyyy 'at' HH:mm 'hours '
WeekNumber:=SubStr(A_YWeek,-1) ; YWeek contains yyyyww and the second parameter -1 indicates that the two rightmost characters are taken
Send in week %WeekNumber% ; outputs the text "in week", followed by the week number (two characters)
SendInput, %CurrentDateTime% ; outputs the text "created on day name day number month name year at hours two characters:minutes two characters hours"
Capslock::Enter ; Capslock functions as a second Enter key
+Capslock::Capslock ; use Shift-CapsLock as Capslock

return

::br::Best regards,{Enter}
return

When I press Ctrl+Alt+D, it generates a line with the week number, name of the computer, year, month, day, hours and minutes. I use that below my signature in mails.

The Caps Lock key is used as second Enter key, to prevent unwanted capitals. To activate Caps Lock, I have to use Shift+Caps Lock. When I type br, it will type Best Regards, followed by an automatic Enter.

I have left out the code that generates my real name, when I type its abbreviation.

I feel no need for other shortcuts, but when you Google, you will find many other possibilities.

gergn, this AllHotKey script shows an unused RegRead, because it returned Windows 10 Pro on my Windows 11 computer. This morning, I asked Perplexity.ai about this and it answered that Microsoft has chosen to let the registry report Windows 10 instead of Windows 10, for compatibility reasons.

It rewrote my script to use WMI to get the correct information. I now use the following script:

#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

; Function to get OS info using WMI
GetOSInfo() {
strComputer := "."
objWMIService := ComObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" . strComputer . "\root\cimv2")
colItems := objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem")._NewEnum

While colItems[objItem]
{
return { Name: objItem.Caption, Version: objItem.Version }
}
}

; Get OS info
OSInfo := GetOSInfo()
OSName := OSInfo.Name
OSVersion := OSInfo.Version

^!d:: ; Ctrl+Alt+D hotkey
FormatTime, CurrentDateTime,, ' opgesteld op de '%A_ComputerName%' (%OSName% version %OSVersion%) op 'dddd dd MMMM yyyy 'om' HH:mm 'uur '
Weeknummer := SubStr(A_YWeek, -1)
Send in week %Weeknummer%
SendInput, %CurrentDateTime%
return

Capslock::Enter ; Capslock works as a second Enter key
+Capslock::Capslock ; Shift+CapsLock functions as CapsLock

::mvg::Met vriendelijke groet,{Enter}
return
