I don't like the screen resolution requirements. Make it adaptable but other than that very handy.


"Its not about the 30 inch 1080p display, or the SLI 8800 ultras, or the DDR3 memory. It's about when you turn on your PC, does it return the favor?"Math is like sex. Sure, it may give some practical results, but that is not why we do it

Actually, It can run in 800x600. I am suggesting 1024X768 as a minimum. Thanks for all the good comments guys. I will continue to improve it bit by bit.

Do you think it would be better to have an option to load your own preferred application profile hotkeys automatically at startup without loading it manually?

OK! Implemented new option to load your favorite profiles at startup!!!!!!! Enjoy!!

Option to activate it at the "Load Application Profile..." dialog box. New download link at first post.

Yes it will be useful, by the way use edit instead. We can always see what you said in edit.

How many people would have actually hit the 1024 limit?

Also, what you have are actually accelerators, not hotkeys. Hotkeys are system wide and can be pressed when any window is active. Just a name issue.

Other than that, it looks nice. I don't understand a screen size suggestion but it's not my program. I use accelerator keys often enough to memorize them, even the weird ones like "Ctrl+K then Ctrl+F" to format source in Visual Studio.
