hotkeyset issue, with using winkey, cuasing start menu to appear

8 posts in this topic

hello and thanks for reading this,

i need to create a hotkey with windows key + the letter z as such:

the problem is that sometimes when i press win+z, the start menu will pop-up.

so somehow my scipt is passing the windows key to the windowsos and so windowsos display the start menu.

this happens is i run via the autoscript ide or if i create an exe for it.

thanks,

david

hotkeyset("#z", "doit")

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

func doit()
    send("^c")
    $thenumber=ClipGet()
endFunc

Cannot reproduce, code works fine for me.

version 3.3.14.2, win7 32.

john, thanks much for testing the code. i will figure it out. i wonder if there is a way to figure out which action happens first.

1. the start menu to pop-up

or

2. my exe program to process the win+z request

thanks,

david

john, but of course that is a silly question but you know what.

right now as i write this, i am listening to dr. micho kaku on his show 'science fantastic' and he always encourages people to ask him silly questions, sometimes the silliest question is the best question...

but for me 38+ years of owning microsoft products, i know how to press win+z.

enjoy...
