Window key as hotkey

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've been looking around at hotkey programs, and decided I would have a go at writing my own. I would like to use the window key as a qualifier, but if I use either {LWIN} or {RWIN}, the hotkey isn't trapped. If I use control or alt as the qualifier, it works fine.

WHat am I doing wrong?

Straight from the helpfile:

The following hotkeys cannot be set:

Ctrl+Alt+Delete It is reserved by Windows

F12 It is also reserved by Windows, according to its API.

NumPad's Enter Key Instead, use {Enter} which captures both Enter keys on the keyboard.

Win+B,D,E,F,L,M,R,U; and Win+Shift+M These are built-in Windows shortcuts. Note: Win+B and Win+L might only be reserved on Windows XP and above.

Alt, Ctrl, Shift, Win These are the modifier keys themselves!

Other Any global hotkeys a user has defined using third-party software, any combos of two or more "base keys" such as '{F1}{F2}', and any keys of the form '{LALT}' or '{ALTDOWN}'.

Pardon my misplaced word. By qualifier, I meant modifier. I want to use something like "{Window Key}z" but nothing happens.

What you wanted for Send() was:

Send("#z") ; Win + z
