keyboard enabled items within a tab

Nov 17, 2010 at 1:31 PM

Hi all,

I am using mouse extender for quite a long time.

I would like to make a suggestion, to create shortcuts for running items within a tab.

So, for instance, the flow would be like:

1. "alt + ~" to show the mouse extender

2. "alt + 2" to select the second tab

3. "5" to run the fifth item (folder / exec)  -OR-  navigate with arrows and press enter to run the selected item  -OR-  both :-) .


This would become a great tool for any keyboard user ( we too like graphics :-] ) .

It's really annoying to pickup your hand from the keyboard when you are programming or integrating systems!!


With respect,

Hello I also be use mouse Extender for a long time
your first two sugestions have been done on the newest version you can use alt-~ to popup the ME window and use alt-# to switch tabs

the third might be nice  i guest i would be just for the first 9 but selecting with the keyboard would be nice to

with all these for the keyboard the ME team might need a new name  now that the keyboard can do so mush now
I think this will be a plug-in to do the selecting a item with a number or keyboard arrows


this is just my thoughts
