CE Software Releases QuicKeys 2.0 for Windows
Leading automation utility software introduces over 30 new features and Windows
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, October 5, 2000 - CE SOFTWARE, INC. (OTCBB Symbol:
CESW) today announced the release of QuicKeys 2.0 for Windows, its industry-leading
automation utility software. Version 2.0 adds Windows 2000 compatibility, pop out
toolbars, screen capture, universal spell checker and many more time-saving features
and improvements. A free 30-day demo is available for download from http://www.cesoft.com/downloads.html.
"QuicKeys is the next best thing to being able to control your computer by
thought alone," said Paul Vincent Craven, Windows expert and Java Programming
Consultant. "QuicKeys is the first thing I install after the operating system."
QuicKeys 2.0 for Windows includes many compelling new features and improvements
designed to make QuicKeys more powerful and easier to use. QuicKeys 2.0 empowers
the user to:
- Save valuable screen space with new Pop Out toolbars.
- Check the spelling of text in virtually any document. Automate zip file management.
- QuicKeys now allows the user to create, extract, validate or add to zip files.
- Accelerate typing with Quick Type. Specify typed abbreviations or choose characters
to represent long words, names or phrases.
- Capture and save a screen shot of the entire screen or active window.
- Move files to the recycle bin or empty the recycle bin in one step.
- Control the location and size of a specified window.
- Manage file attributes like date, time and "read only" setting without
- Plus many more new features that enrich QuicKeys, including full compatibility
with Windows 2000.
QuicKeys is a personal productivity tool that eliminates any repetitive and cumbersome
daily computing tasks. QuicKeys dramatically reduces time and effort spent on the
PC by automating routinely performed tasks on demand, in every application. With
QuicKeys, users can assign a single key or button, or easily create powerful custom
toolbars to perform simple functions - like opening a folder, typing text, choosing
from menus, plus many more. QuicKeys also automates more complex routines, like a
series of formatting commands performed often or compressing and sending files via
E-mail. QuicKeys simply records the keystrokes and mouse-clicks involved in the task
then plays the entire sequence back, quickly and accurately, whenever the user presses
the hot key or clicks the toolbar button designated for that task. All this without
having to learn complicated programming language.
"Now you can turn mindless repetitive work into a walk in the park with QuicKeys
2.0 for Windows," said Adam Z. Lein, computer graphics designer and Windows
expert. "The new pop out toolbars give me access to any number of programmed
actions or applications without taking up precious desktop real estate."
"People who use Windows on a daily basis need an automation tool that is
flexible, full-featured and easy to use," said John S. Kirk, President of CE
Software, Inc. "They are looking for an easy way to boost productivity, saving
them time and money. We provide that solution with QuicKeys 2.0 for Windows by allowing
the user to control the computer, and have fun at the same time."
