Hotkey Master is a software application that provides users with a simple means of assigning commands to activators such as keyboard shortcuts, windows and messages.

The interface you come across encompasses a pretty cluttered and not so appealing design, as it consists of many buttons, drop-down menus and panes in which to display information. As a result, it becomes quite clear that novice users might encounter a few difficulties when trying to find their way around it.

It is possible to create an unlimited number of entries, so that you can easily automate any process that you deem necessary. To each of these you can add a name, a command and an activator, such as a custom keyboard shortcut, the launch of a specified window, the appearance of a message and on an input schedule.

When it comes to commands you can choose between items from a pretty long list, which includes a keyboard macro, body text, mouse event, execution of an app, launch of a new window, changing of the screen resolution or IP address, killing of a process and starting an alarm.

All entries created can be sorted into groups, so that you can find them easier. This utility does not get in your way, as it sits in the system tray at all times. By right-clicking this icon you can bring up a context menu which allows you to disable hotkeys, access the settings panel and exit.

To conclude, Hotkey Master is a pretty efficient piece of software which enables you to automate many processes, dedicated mostly to experienced users. CPU and memory usage is low at all times, the response time is good and there are sufficient options incorporated to keep you glued to your seat for quite a while. Nevertheless, you should know it has not been uploaded lately and the interface could use more work.
