AppsKeyMenu is a tool for executing functions through a small popup menu. Simply press the AppsKey on your keyboard, then type in the function name followed by some whitespace and whatever parameter you want to pass into it.
It comes with a few very useful functions, such as "top" to set the active window AlwaysOnTop, and "run" to find and run a program. For example,
run notepad++would automatically find and run
You can create a sub-folder called "Programs" and put .lnk files in it to programs you want to give a custom name to. For example, creating a file such as
ssh home.lnkthat links to
"C:\Program Files\PuTTY\putty.exe" email@example.com -P secretportwould make it so that when you AKM the phrase
run ssh home, it would launch putty with the specified command line flags.
To add your own functions, create a file called
Custom.ahk. This fill will be
#Includedinto AppsKeyMenu on script start. The name of the function will be the AKM command, and the first parameter of the function will receive any given parameter.
