Keyboard Shortcut Manager (AutoHotkey-based)


For a new installation: The ShortKeeper File Extractor will let you browse for a folder where the ShortKeeper files will be extracted. It will give you the option of creating a desktop shortcut to launch ShortKeeper.

For an update: You can update ShortKeeper with the latest File Extractor OR with the Update button in ShortKeeper. The second method is simpler because you won’t have to browse for the ShortKeeper folder. However, some network configurations won’t let you update ShortKeeper from within the program. In such a case, you would have to manually download and run the File Extractor.
