Command Line v.2.0

I use cmdline to create aliases to my most frequently viewed favorites and folders. Instead of having to move the mouse over the favorites menu, i create hotkeys for them. I know that u can already assign hotkeys to favorites through windows, but you must conform to their hotkey association format which is "alt + ctrl + hotkey." W/ cmd line you can assign "alt + hotkey" or "ctrl + hotkey" to a webpage or program w/ out having to create an IE favorite or true launch bar(tlb) menu w/ favorites/programs dragged to the menu. This allows me to regain the desktop space that the favorites menu would occupy, it gets get rid of the need of desktop icon shortcuts, and helps me keep my hands off of the mouse(helps w/ karpal tunnel...sorry if i misspelled that). I hope that was clear.

Also, i assigned "ctrl + tab" to cmdline as a hotkey. Anytime i need to type out a web address, i can just press the hotkey and type the url instead of moving the mouse over to address bar and typing it. I know that you can press F4 to do the same thing, but i have a multimedia keyboard that doubles the functions of the F-keys. I dont like the standard shortcuts that windows assign to these keys so I customize the functions of the F-keys to my liking.

In other words, i use cmdline to create aliases to webpages/programs w/ out having to create the shortcuts itself. For me, Cmdline has greatly expanded the use of every single key on my keyboard.

THANK YOU Yuri!!! Big Grin
