Hot Keyboard Pro is a very useful automatization tool. It allows you to assign keyboard shortcuts to carry out every-day operations without the need of touching your mouse. The application can do a lot of things, ranging from launching applications to pasting different strings of text or even HTML coding into any application.
Hot Keyboard Pro uses a configuration wizard to initially set up the app. During that wizard, you can add a bunch of built-in macros. In my case, the application detected that I had Windows Media Player and Internet explorer shortcuts on my desktop, so it suggested that I give them a keyboard shortcut. I did and the app automatically assigned a combination of keys that I could press at any time to launch those apps. You can of course change the keyboard shortcut to something else, and add new macros that do new tasks. There were over a hundred pre-programmed macros that you can add and that you don't even need to configure.
The application also can function as a password manager, which can paste your passwords onto other applications or websites. It has a master password which is encrypted using 128-bit encryption.
All in all, this is a very complete app, with some interesting extra features. It works well and it is very easy to set up.

- It is easy to use.

- Bonus features are good.
