Hot set hotkey to activate a Winbatch standalone .exe app ?
« on: October 23, 2023, 04:57:49 pm »
I would like to be able to press a hot key, like, say Ctrl+Shift+M to activate a .exe program I have created.  How can I do that in Windows 11?

Ideally, I would like the program to set up the hotkey itself automatically.

The traditional method is the create a desktop shortcut. See the ShortCutMake and ShortCutExtra functions in the Consolidated WIL Help file or the WinBatch documents website.
