Qliner Hotkeys

This is rapidly becoming one of my favourite toys.
Qliner hotkeys is a free and open source keyboard productivity environment… and it’s really pretty.

So? What does it do?

Smart Application Launching (you are typing a letter in word and need to check an address… hit Windows A and the address book you have configured pops up and you check your address, close the address book and you have’nt had to scrabble around and find the mouse.)
Volume Control Add-in
Pop Clock Add-in
Optionally maps Caps Lock key to Window key (handy if your keyboard does not have a Windows key or if you just hate the default bahavior of Caps Lock)

Hotkeys builds on the concept of Windows shortcut keys but takes this concept to a whole new level.

Do you think key combinations are hard to remember? Just hold the Windows key for three seconds and up pops a Onscreen Keyboard with icons on the keys that are configured. This you can you use , not only to remind you of hotkey combinations, but also for Drag and Drop Configuration.

This is a very cool toy.
