There is a way to run Keybreeze Desktop as an administrator every time, but it involves several steps, so I documented this in a separate post -- https://keybreeze.com/forum/post/88

Hi Steve, a few things that come to mind:

1. Are you running Excel as an administrator? If you are running Keybreeze Desktop as a regular user and Excel as an administrator, the hotkey will not work. One way to test this would be to navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Keybreeze5, right-click Keybreeze.exe and click Run As Administrator. Then see if the hotkey works in Excel.

2. Are you running Excel as another user? Or are you running it over a terminal session, like Citrix?

3. Have you tried to temporarily change the hotkey to something else, like Shift + Space, to see if that works in Excel?

Hi John, are you saying that you when you press the hotkey, Keybreeze Desktop appears, but you can't type anything in the window? Have you tried rebooting your machine to see if that fixes the problem? If you can't type anything in the window, or the window appears unresponsive, force closing it and reopening it, or rebooting your machine, may fix the issue.

Another possibility is that the files that store the settings got corrupted, and that's causing it to appear unresponsive. You can navigate to %appdata% and back up the Keybreeze5 folder to a separate location. Once the folder is backed up, uninstall Keybreeze Desktop from Control Panel > Programs and Features (do not retain the existing settings). Then install it again. That should install it with the default settings that work. You could then close the application and restore your settings from the backup location to the %appdata%\Keybreeze5 folder to see if they work or if the problem comes back.

Sorry for the late reply, but I' happy to report that this functionality has been added in 5.6.0! https://keybreeze.com/download/releasenotes/keybreeze/

Just wanted to follow up on this -- the text limit has been increased to 2147483646 characters, or the memory limit, in the 5.6.0 version. You can download it here -- https://www.keybreeze.com/download/macro_recorder/download/

There are basically two ways you can do it -- You can update to Keybreeze5 on the old PC first and then copy the %appdata%\Keybreeze5 settings to your new machine (while Keybreeze Desktop is closed). Then you should have the same settings on both machines. The second way would be to uninstall Keybreeze Desktop 5.x on your new machine, copy the %appdata%\Keybreeze4 settings from your old machine to the new one. Then install Keybreeze Desktop 5.6.0 on your new machine. It should detect your 4.x settings and automatically convert them to JSON files. More information about this is in this post -- https://keybreeze.com/forum/post/23/where-are-my-settings-stored-how-do-i-transfer-settings-to-another-machine.

Thank you all for your kind words and support over these years. I'm very fortunate to have a group of passionate and dedicated users. I plan to continue working on this for as long as I am able. Please feel free to suggest feature requests and enhancement requests, and I'll do my best to incorporate them.

Yes, when you update to version 5, it will retain your keywords and letter commands. It will convert the INI files to JSON files, but the settings should still be there.

The keywords.ini was replaced with a keywords.json file a while back. The file should be located in the %appdata%/Keybreeze5 directory. I would recommend closing Keybreeze and making a backup of the file before modifying it.

The error above looks to be related to the "Load Keybreeze at Windows Startup" setting in the Options window, since that checks the registry. Are you logged in as a local administrator on the machine? You could try right clicking Keybreeze.exe and clicking Run as Administrator to see if that prevents that error. There was also a setting added in version 5.5.2 to skip the registry check. More details on this should be on the Download > View release notes page.

Hi Ari,

To add keywords for modern Microsoft apps, such as OneNote, the steps are a bit different. I just tried the following and was able to launch OneNote from Keybreeze afterwards:

1. Click the Windows Start button, type Command Prompt, and press Enter.

2. Type explorer shell:AppsFolder and press Enter. This should open a new window.

3. Right-click the app, such as OneNote, and click Create shortcut. This should put the shortcut on your desktop.

4. Move the shortcut to another folder so that it doesn't stay on the Desktop. You can right-click the shortcut on the Desktop and click Cut. Then go to your Documents folder and create a new folder called shortcuts. Go into the shortcuts folder and paste the shortcut there.

5. Press the Keybreeze hotkey and type Add. Give the keyword a name. For the target, type the location of the shortcut, f...
