Free Keyboard Macro Tool

There are plenty of keyboard macro tools out there. They help make your life easier by assigning commands or snippets of text to hotkeys that you've chosen. Once you get the hang of them, they can really help improve your productivity.

HotKeyBind does all this, and it offers additional features. Many keyboard macro tools require that you use combinations of keys, generally an alphanumeric key like "A" or "6" in conjunction with a modifier, such as [Control], [Alt], or [Shift]. With HotKeyBind, you can use un-modified keys for your shortcuts. If you never use a backtick (that funny little backwards apostrophe that shares the key with the tilde next to the "1" key on your keyboard), why not make it do some work for you—maybe open a browser, or type your home address into a letter? HotKeyBind also lets you disable built-in Windows hotkeys, like the [WinKey] + R combination.

HotKeyBind is a free download. It's a Windows application, and runs under Win95 or later.

    I like it cause I can use Batch Files to glue my macros together. That’s perfect for an old school guy like myself. Plus I can tweak my scripts wherever they go. Nothing has to be compiled or installed on the machine that I send my scripts to.
