triangle WinMapper: Put your keyboard to work!

WinMapper is our RSI-, game- and office-friendly software utility that allow you to program your mouse and keyboard. Use WinMapper to control the default Windows Key and Mouse Keys behaviour, create aliases, create keyboard shortcuts to one of the many functions, or use the built-in Bookmarks feature instead of ALT+TAB. WinMapper runs in the system tray, and can be configured to start automatically.

WinMapper is distributed as shareware, and you can download a free 30-day trial version from our website. When the initial 30-day trial period has expired, you must purchase a license to continue using WinMapper.

WinMapper Features

WinMapper enables you to create keyboard shortcuts to a wide variety of functions, while providing enhanced control of windows, MouseKeys, Windows Key hotkeys, and Aliases. WinMapper is the only software to allow this much control over your keyboard and the use of Microsoft Windows, and has several unique features built-in.

For office users, we have implemented a range of features to ease the tasks that are often repeated. This includes the insertion of signatures or predefined text , the recording and repetition of keystrokes, repeated repetitions, automatic numbering, quick access to the most recently used document or application, shortcuts for creating a new emails, bookmarking and switching between open documents, and more. As these features are used with WinMapper hotkeys, they are accessible in all applications.

For game players, we have implemented functions that allow precise programming of the keyboard and mouse responses, with programmable delays and support for a timed loop that can be stopped by repeating the hotkey or pressing ESCAPE. Note that even though two different implementations of both the Antz and SendKeys functions are available (Playback or Simulation types), some games and/or applications may not support this, or may discourage or disallow the use of such features.

For music, image, and internet browsing, the DirPlay category provides access to functions that will run any type of file in a specified folder, in the specified order. This, essentially, is a CD player for folders, and works on all file types supported by your Windows system.

The main features of WinMapper are listed here:

Define keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys)

Screenshot: Hotkey (keyboard shortcut)

Define keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys) with virtually any key combination, including the Microsoft Windows Key and MultiMedia keys. Each key-combination can be assigned to execute one of the 100 functions. Click here to see an example (screenshot) of the Edit Hotkey window.

Multiple keyboard profiles

Profiles

Create multiple profiles, each containing WinMapper settings and hotkeys. Profiles can be loaded using a hotkey (and the Load Profile function), or accessed from the WinMapper menu. This enables you to create individual keyboard profiles for use in special programs or scenarios.

Create Email, Internet and file shortcuts

Internet category

WinMapper can be used to create keyboard shortcuts for creating new emails, optionally with a specific recipient and/or subject. Internet Favorites, shortcuts, documents, files, folders, applications, and control panel extensions can be launched directly from a hotkey. Hotkeys can also be used to open the most Recently Used Document, or to repeat the last Run command.

Use Bookmarks

Enable Bookmarks setting

Bookmark applications for easy navigation between the most commonly used windows. Set one of the standard 0-9 bookmarks by pressing Shift, the Windows Key and a number between 0 and 9 - then jump to a previously set bookmark by pressing the Windows Key and the number (0-9).

MouseKeys Enhancements

Enable MouseKeys setting

WinMapper provides easy access to some Microsoft MouseKeys features, and the optional addition of using the cursor keys as well as the numeric keypad, keyboard-controlled increments of the mouse movement speed, and more.

Manage your Alias list

Screenshot of the Alias window

Add, Edit or Remove application Aliases. These are nicknames for applications, and are installed by most Windows applications. You can remove outdated entries, or add your own nicknames to your favorite applications. When defined, typing the application nickname in the Run menu starts the application.

Control the Microsoft Windows Key functionality

WinMapper provides the option of disabling the default Microsoft Windows Key functionality and associated hotkeys. The Start Menu and the Windows D,E,F,M and R hotkeys can be disabled or overwritten.

Hide the windows

Override menu doubleclicks setting

WinMapper has an optional feature that can change the default behaviour in Microsoft Windows when you double-click on the title of a window. Most applications default to Maximize/Restore, or provides no functionality at all. By enabling this WinMapper option, all double-clicks result in the window being hidden - except the window title bar. The original size is remembered, and the window is restored to normal when another double-click on the remaining title is made. WinMapper can remember up to 20 window sizes at one time.

Easy access to WinMapper

WinMapper shortcut setting

WinMapper provides the option of displaying the main WinMapper window when both the left and the right Windows key is pressed simultaneously. You can also enable or disable your WinMapper shortcut on the desktop, and the automatic starting of WinMapper. You can also quickly review both the online and offline help by pressing F1 and flipping the Use Online Help switch.

Macros

Macro functions

Record your keystrokes for later playback (repetition). Once a series of keystrokes are recorded, you can repeat these by using the Play Macro function to repeat the keystrokes once, or the Repeat Macro function to repeat the keystrokes a number of times.

Text, Number and Date insertion

Keyboard / text functions

You can use the Send Keys function to insert text strings, including limited formatting, as if you typed it yourself. This function can also be used to insert an automatic number as part of the text - the number is determined by the Next Number function. There is also a specific function for inserting the current date in a desired format.

Programmable mouse and keyboard

Antz function

Use the Antz function to program your mouse responses in advance, including timed delays between mouse actions and/or repetitions (Antz Loop). In addition to normal text, the SendKeys and SendKeys Loop functions supports timed delays, key names, and both types of keyboard programming (Playback/Simulation).

DirPlay

DirPlay functions

The one and only CD Player for directories. You can use the DirPlay functions to Start, Stop, Pause, Resume, Play, and navigate around files in the specified directory, in a specified or random order. This works on all files supported by your Windows, including documents, applications, images, sound files, Internet Favorites, Shortcuts, movies, Email shortcuts, etc.

Timers

Timer functions

WinMapper also provides easy access to a simple Timer. By using Start, Stop, Pause, Resume, and Clear to control when and how the time is recorded, you can view the time spent by selecting the Timer Status menu or function.

Run menu

Run menu (GotoFolder function)

The GotoFolder function allows you to run (or open) an application, folder, document, shortcut, Internet Favorite, URL, or any other supported file. In addition to history and auto-completion, it also provides access to the Select window, a user-friendly categorized listing of local files.

WinMapper v2.0 is scheduled to enhance this function with support for function names and inverted verbs.

Rich function set

Reference page

WinMapper provides a rich set of functions to choose from - in fact, there are so many we found it necessary to divide them into 14 categories. The official WinMapper site provides online access to the help database on all aspects of WinMapper and its features, and we recommend you visit the WinMapper website for full and updated information.
