Keyboard LaunchPad is a System Utilities::Launchers & Task Managers software developed by Stardock Systems. After our trial and test, the software was found to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for Keyboard LaunchPad: Keyboard Launchpad (KLP) is a program that allows you to quickly and easily assign hot keys to launch programs, visit URLs, paste saved clipboards, control individual programs, perform system commands, and more.
What makes KLP special is that it works system wide. No matter what program you're in, no matter what you're doing, you can always access the hotkeys of KLP. It also has an open plugin format so that if there is a specialized program you wish to add your own hot key support to, you can do so.
KLP can turn your current clipboard into a permanent hotkey. Technical support departments use KLP to store “canned replies” for customers, marketing and legal departments use KLP to store logos, letter heads, signatures, and more. And Internet users can use KLP to store passwords, signatures, and frequent responses.
Version 1.6 adds categorization of hot keys, Windows Vista support, and the ability to assign hot keys to control iTunes(R) music player.
