[Featured] 'Apprentice' Windows 10 shortcuts remote
I put this remote together for common functions I use in Windows 10 - it's proven so useful that I use it all the time.
The google voice search button requires Google Chrome with the 'GooNow' extension installed (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/goonow-voice-search/bniejnipfeaoocpolpocebkkklagoobh?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog). To get it working you need to open the extensions page in Chrome, scroll to the bottom and click 'Keyboard shortcuts'. Set the keyboard shortcut for GooNow as Ctrl+Shift+V, and be sure to select 'Global' from the drop-down.
The commands are:
Search / Cortana (listen) / Google voice search (Chrome only)
Move to left desktop / Tasks and desktops overview / Move to right desktop
Volume down / mute / up
Cut / Copy / Paste
Undo / Select All / Permanently delete (skip recycle bin)
I hope you find it as useful as I have!
It would be great if you could put the remote on github and then submit it to:
That way it would be easier for people to find it even users that is not on the community.
Excellent remote mate :) I'm just starting out learning how to code these remotes, and yours is a great template to work from.
I had one question: does the desktop overview work for you? When I run it on my phone, it just flashes the overview, because the L-Win+Tab combo is only being "tapped", rather than the L-Win being held down to continue displaying the overview. This is the same problem I ran into with my custom Alt-Tab button remote - it will only alt-tab between the 2 most recent windows, because I'm not holding down Alt. I thought maybe there was extra bit of code that defined a command as a "tap" or a "hold", but I can see yours doesn't show that..
Only thing difference seems to be that I'm using an iPhone, whereas u seem to be using something on Android platform, could that make a difference? Oh and Windows 7..
Thanks bro :)
If anyone's interested, workaround here.
