How to make a hotkey for data entry?
« on: August 27, 2019, 12:18:38 PM »
Is there a way to make a hotkey on desktop for data entry. Say I use "1234" in different programs and forms. Can a hotkey be made for this where it will enter "1234" no matter which program or form I am using?
If you want to vote Democrat, you are being very disloyal to Jewish people and very disloyal to Israel, Mr. Trump said.

Autohotkey works and is easy to use.

I hope the word is not 'Kool-Aid'...
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

That's to short to justify a hotkey. More likely "need to get out more"
