HotKeyz – cool freeware lets you blaze through your tasks with shortcuts


HotKeyz is a cool little freeware utility which lets you set up a set of useful hotkey combinations for navigating your daily computer tasks. Everyone knows that using a mouse is far less efficient than banging out a fast keyboard combo like CTRL-L or whatever, so this little tool should really make a difference if you’re into improving your computer productivity.


Set up is nice and easy, you get a choice of command options for programs and actions and in a matter of moments you can be set with a group of hotkeys for most of your frequent actions. You can also reconfigure the Windows defaults, which is valuable if you find yourself having to tweak or use Windows settings on a regular basis. All in all, a very neat little program.

 HotKeyz lets you easily create and maintain a categorized list of your hotkeys. Each hotkey, a key combination on your keyboard, will launch a command. You decide which commands go with which hotkeys. Some of these commands are internal HotKeyz commands and the rest are Windows commands. HotKeyz will help you to manage repetitive tasks on your PC with speed and minimal effort.

  • once you install a program like this, you will never go back to the mouse for repetitive tasks. hotkeys become second nature and as simple as merely thinking about performing a task. I've been using hotkeyp (another free program) for years and recommend it. However this HotKeyz has a much slicker interface. Good find.
