What's New

  • New! Windows Environment Variables (%temp%, %path%, %anything_else%) are now expanded and processed when used as parameters for shortcuts. These variables can also be entered or modified by using the "Prompt for Parameters" option (Select a shortcut → Shortcut Properties → Prompt for Parameters).
  • New! Added support for the 24-hour clock format for reminders and when Date/Time is shown in the title-bar. This can be configured via the "24-hour" option within the Reminder dialog.
  • New! Introduced the ability to define a custom title for the workspace. This feature is particularly useful when managing multiple workspaces concurrently (using multiple portable versions. See the Tour page for more). The custom title can be set under "Settings → General → Title Bar → Custom"
  • Enhancement: When dragging shortcuts across the workspace using the shortcut's name label, holding the [Alt] key will display the shortcut's x/y coordinates in the title bar.
  • Enhancement: Recent menu entries for shortcuts now indicate the container they belong to, providing clearer context.
  • Bug Fix: Resolved an issue within the Keyboard Launcher where the last found shortcut remained visible even when the entered text didn't match the shortcut's name.
  • Misc: Various minor fixes and improvements to enhance the overall user experience.
