For those who love to type…

I’m a fan of the keyboard. I would rather have a keyboard shortcut to anything than having to reach for my mouse… Enter Bayden’s SlickRun.

SlickRun is a way of setting up shortcuts to perform a series of actions on the computer. I just press <ALT> Q and enter the shortcut into the search box… For example:

  • “Hosts” opens up my local Hosts file in Administrator-enabled NotePad.
  • “Morning” and I get today’s latest news, compliments of Google.
  • Mail kicks off Outlook,
  • Rfpr opens up a Word template that I use as a base for RFP Responses, etc.

You can configure your own shortcuts or use some of the pre-canned ones available as “packs” on the download page. Grab it here: http://www.bayden.com/SlickRun/ – Made by Eric Lawrence, the author of Fiddler <–Guy’s got cred.

About Brad Saide

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
