For those among us that have been desiring a way to add their own shortcuts to accomplish tasks in Camtasia or SnagIt, I notice that the Giveaway of the Day site is offering a product named "Perfect Hotkey". Apparently this application allows defining your own hotkeys and assigning them to actions.

Note that you must download, install, and activate the software today. You cannot download it today, then wait a day or a week to install and activate it.

Cheers... Rick :)

This looks like a Windows Keyboard Shortcut hijacking program to me.
I don't think this program is designed for use with Applications at all.

From the Web Site


Perfect Hotkey is the ultimate productivity tool for the everyday computer user. With Perfect Hotkey, you can open any program, website, game, video, music with a hotkey that you defined. This will not only boost productivity, but also save you the time wasted on finding programs, locating folders, double clicking on music files and manually opening a website. Perfect Hotkey can do all that for you.

  • Open your favorite websites without you starting your browser
  • Run your programs without you having to find them in the start menu, desktop or folders
  • Close, minimize, maximize windows with a single key, without clicking on anything.
  • Hide any program, game, video, picture with a few presses of a key
  • Shutdown or restart your computer in less than a second.
  • Open any program, website, game, file, folder, drive, music, video, document, image anywhere, anytime without finding, clicking or opening it.
Nowhere in the description does it mention assigning keyboard shortcuts to "Individual Programs".

This is how it appears to work to me.If you used this, you have only one Keyboard Profile to work with.

If you manage to change a programs hot key.It should globally change the hot key of every program/function on your computer, utilizing the same key. Regardless of the function.

With programmable keyboards. You create and save different profiles, for use with multiple programs.  

Just my observation, I could be wrong???
look it over yourself.
