ZenKEY - shortcuts and macros for Windows

review from ClifNotes, May 2007, permalink Desktop Tools


Under review

Sorry folks, I meant to try this program out this week, but I ran out of time. The website looks very smooth and the software sounds even smoother. If you are in a Zen mood and try this one out, be sure to comment below to let us know how you like it.


Quote from the website

  • ZenKEY. Instant and complete control of your PC. One keystroke, any action.
  • Launch a program, bring it back into focus, or move to another one.
  • Open a document, folder, Internet resource or start a search
  • Move, mininimize, or make windows transaparent. Make them bigger, smaller, send them to the tray. Set them to 'Always on top' or tile them. Play.
  • Issue a Media command, such as play, pause or volume up/down.
  • Use an unlimted desktop to move across and place program windows.
  • Start your screensaver, shutdown your computer, open a CD door and more.
  • Access hidden Windows utilities
  • Control Winamp or compatible media players (we love QCD Player!)
  • Instantly display any menu of programs or actions at the mouse pointer
  • Launch other programs automatically on ZenKEY startup
  • Simulate a series of keystrokes (Script any action - automate tasks)


Advanced settings allow you to automatically make program windows transparent as you move between them. Using the ZenKEY configuration utility, you can add any program, add or alter any menu, and assign any keystroke to perform any action.
