Use hotkeys to open or move/copy selected files in Windows Explorer
With SpicyKeys, you can select file(s)/folder(s) in Windows Explorer and press a hotkey to either open them in a predefined program or move/copy them to a predefined destination.
Edit spicykeys.txt to define what the hotkeys will do, then run spicykeys.exe or, if it's already running, right-click the tray icon and click Update Config.
F7 open C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe \ open C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe ^+f run C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe ^!k move !:\keep ^!b copy D:\backup
Each line has three components: the hotkey, the mode, and the path.
The hotkey is in AutoHotkey's format.
Examples: #F1 is Win+F1, +!w is Shift+Alt+W, ^Numpad0 is Ctrl+Numpad0
The mode can be open, run, move, or copy.
In open or run mode, the path is to an executable.
In open mode, the selected file(s)/folder(s) will open with the executable.
In run mode, the executable will run without opening anything.
In move or copy mode, the path is the destination that the selected file(s)/folder(s) will be moved/copied to.
The destination can be in one of five formats:
will go to
|example||D:\source\example\file.txt||The destination is within the source's folder.|
|E:\example||E:\example\file.txt||The destination is a full folder path.|
|:\example||D:\example\file.txt||As above, except the destination is on the same drive as the source.|
|!E:\example||E:\example\source\file.txt||The destination is added to the front of the source's path.|
|!:\example||D:\example\source\file.txt||As above, except the destination is on the same drive as the source.|
