If you suffer from wrist problems or simply don't like using your mouse, then you should think about getting more out of your keyboard.

ZenKEY allows you to do just that by giving you full control over your keyboard to assign keystrokes for just about every conceivable function. It also allows you to extend the use of your mouse beyond simple clicking to cut and paste or select links. Amongst the many functions you can program it to carry out it can, launch a program or bring it back into focus, open a document, folder or Internet resource, search the Internet and even minimize or maximize a window.

In addition, it allows you to resize, move or alter a window, issue media commands (eg play, pause or volume up/down), start your screensaver and even shutdown your computer without even touching your mouse or the Start menu. The program also promises to allow you to "access hidden Windows utilities" although it doesn't specify what these are or where they are but to be honest, it offers enough functionality without seeking hidden bonuses. The multimedia functions are not particularly useful if you have a multimedia keyboard - being able to stop start and fast forward your music via the keyboard is hardly a revelation but this is still an impressive tool.

Reduce your mouse usage or simply get more out of your keyboard, ZenKEY helps you do it all.

Changes

  • Corrected transparency inconsistencies on Zen Icons.
  • Corrected problem where icons where not reloaded on startup.
  • Optimized multi-window selection on the Desktop map.
  • Corrected a problem in laying out icons in Zenbar mode.
  • Removed dynamic Zenbar layout enforcing - seems more irritating than useful.
