Windows Desktop Macros
Opening applications with a single keypress is a great way to get to commonly used apps. However, they do take a little bit of effort to set up and there are a few different ways to set it up, here is how we set it up.
Macros are set up through Remap.
If you want to know how to program macros into your Tap Trio, please visit the Tap Trio macro setup guide.
Mail, Calculator, My PC, Browser
These commonly used applications can be found under "Special" tab in Remap.
WWW Home will open your default browser's home page.
Just drag and drop to the key you want to set up and it's ready to go!
Open Specific folder or drive
You can set a macro to open a specific folder/drive by first creating a shortcut of the folder, and set a shortcut key in the shortcut's properties menu.
1. Right click the folder and create a shortcut.
2. Right click the shortcut and select properties. Under the Shortcuts heading, locate Shortcut key. Set an unused keyboard combination to the shortcut key.
We used Ctrl+Shit+Alt+P in this example.
3. Input the sequence into Remap for the key you want to set.
Hit "flash" to save the macro and drag the macro into the key you want to bind.
