Tutorial: How to remap TypeMatrix keys (mail, calc, www, desktop, play, app, etc.) with autohotkey!
  • Tommy_Gun February 2011

    I wrote a short tutorial after changing my own keys around. It's very easy to do, and extremely useful. If you have any questions, let me know and I'll update the post!

    Thanks for that tutorial. I know how to use autohotkey, but your examples gave me ideas I wouldn't have thought of. Here's are my new and improved AHK assignments:

    Capslock::Delete ;switch thees back to the way they used to be

    ;per Tommy_Gun tutorial, except I got rid of the "ctrl"
    Media_Play_Pause::^c ;chg "play" to ctrl-c rather than stock ctrl+ins
    AppsKey::^v ; chg to ctrl-v rather than stock shift+ins

    Browser_Home::Insert ;move insert key to www

    #d::#Capslock ; use the desktop key to run the keyboard shortcut for the "Switcher" program.

    Launch_Mail::PrintScreen ;make printscreen a one-key operation

    Nice! I guess I don't really want copy/paste to be on single keys, in case of accidental pasting in IMs and things like that. Also, I use the "play" button a lot for listening to streaming radio, so it's nice to have there.

Howdy, Stranger!
