KeyX (or WinKeyX, as will better song?) - 9x explorer hotkey extender

Recommended Posts

Very little and simplest tool, which just add some usefull (at least for me) standard hotkeys from win7 explorer to 9x/2k/xp...

Also want ask you, what name for it utility will better select - KeyX, or WinKeyX, or some other? :D

Already implemented hotkeys:

Win + Up Arrow: Maximize/Restore
Win + Down Arrow: Collapse/Restore
Win + 1..9: Run icon at position # in Quick Launch Bar (Pinned Apps replacement)

KeyX sounds fine, there is too much software starting with Win at the beginning :)

The program looks like a good foundation for a much more advanced hotkey utility, like replacing the existing ones/making new ones by user/making screenshots on the fly/other hooks to make hotkeys off like shutdown/register DLL with a hotkey? I'm just giving ideas, I don't know what you want to do with this software in the future :)

Also, totally offtopic: Can you re-upload the Odyssey Client installer by you? The original link has expired.

I want just make simple tool for myself, not that overloaded monster as rp9. I can add more hotkeys, if u suggest, but without possibility for adding user-defined keys... For that tasks there exist many other big apps. Powerpro, for example - is nice tool!

I re-upload oac in WiFi topic, but I'm not sure, that link will actual long time. File-sharing services usually del rare downloadble files.

Didn't know about Powerpro, seems like a very nice 9x utility, if I knew about it I would not write like that.

Thanks for the reupload, I have a friend who needed it.

hello :) make little update...
new hotkeys - Win + Numpad 1/2/3 (when Numlock is ON), will force almost any window to maximize for all desktop HEIGHT with setting 4:3 aspect ratio for CLIENT AREA of window. 1 - aling LEFT, 2 -  CENTER, 3 - RIGHT.

i found this usefull for VM's/Hardware Emulator's windows. now it look as if u have real 4:3 screen inside ur modern 49" ultrawide LCD... :D EVEN IN TEXT MODE!

also here added very limited tray icon way as workaround for PCem and clones, which dont allow hotkeys work as normal...

have some news... keyx ver 191027 will dropped, ie reverted to ver 190424.
it was bad idea. instead improving KeyX, now i write new tool, specially for VM window resize to aspect...
new tool is bit more smart. :D it will called from Window Menu via right mouse click on window header - no more idiotic workaround for PCem etc.
alse new tool will look real guest area size, w/o menubar/statusbar. ie aspect 4:3 will very precise...

now i want ask,  what name is better for my new tool (Virtual Machine [Guest/Client] [Window/Area] [Sizer/Resizer]):
VMCAR/VMGAR/VMGASes :thumbup/etc... or somewhat other?
