With HotKey You can define keyboard shortcuts to launch Applications or to open folders in Finder. Another way is to open the Apps by selecting them from the Status-Menu in Your Mac’s menu bar.
Show the content of the clipboard with one keyboard shortcut.
The functionality can be expanded even further by installing an AppleScript in the Application-Specific Scripts Folder. The Script can be installed after activating the feature using the following Terminal commands ( Utilities / Terminal ) :
defaults write de.codenuts.HotKey enable-script-install 1
After activating the feature the Apple-Script can be installed within the Preferences-Dialog of HotKey. With this feature HotKey can open Apps using selected files or folders from the foremost finder window. You can open selected files with your E-Mail-Client or with your preferred Editor with one shortcut. Or just open the Terminal at the position of the selected file or folder.
