Creates macros & let's you "press" keys with a mouse [Key Manager].
Pros: Easily create & edit macros, remap formerly useless keys, and create user defined menus so you can trigger your macros with either a mouse click, a keypress, or a hot-key combination.
Cons: None, except the free version is limited to ten macros.
Summary: This program is great! It sends keystrokes allowing the creation of macros. The genius: it can create menus of your macros, and can trigger the macros with methods in addition to the usual hot-key combinations. For example: A "long press" right mouse click brings up a user-customized menu that let's me select any key or hot-key combination with my mouse; great if your hands are limited by chronic disease, or if you just prefer using the mouse. A never-used key on my keyboard is now programmed to create the multi-keypress ASCII bullet points I use frequently, a huge convenience! Many other features are available, and the program is easy to learn. I use it many times daily. Worth every penny!, User reviews
