AIHotKey is a small but useful tool that allows you to launch applications and open files or folders with ease. In the AIHotKey main dialog you can add all the applications which you would like to be opened by means of hot key combinations. The Hot Key Wizard will allow you to set the required parameters and configure your defined applications step by step.
In the first screen of the Wizard, you need to set the hot key combination by pressing the corresponding keys for 4 seconds simultaneously. If the hotkey combination already exists, the program will let you know. Then, you have to select the type of action the hotkey combination will perform (open an installed program, folder, or file). Next, you select the window state when opening the selected file/application (normal, minimized, maximized, or invisible). After that, you can describe the hot key combination. Finally, the hot key combination will be added to the list of user keys in the AIHotKey main dialog and it will be ready to use. You don't need to open the AIHotKey main dialog all the time, you can be minimize it and the program will continue working. You can open it from the icon added to the system tray.
