About QuicKeys
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."
