    That's weird! Could be sending Ctrl+N for some reason, but I can't see why.
    Are you using the standard bundled remote, you haven't downloaded a customised version, or edited the code yourself?
    Has it always done this?

    Generally the remotes/widgets send a keyboard shortcut to a program that has focus - would that be case for silhouette cameo?

    Hm, I can't imagine how this would be related, but I guess something has changed. I've never had a problem with UR not starting on startup.

    Obviously you haven't changed the path to the program? Is it possible it is starting but there's a problem with the icon in the system tray? This would be the case if RemoteServerWin.exe is running in Task Manager..

    If not, I'm not sure. You could try reinstating your Monitor remote to factory, just to count that out, but I cant see any way that a remote problem would affect startup. Usually the ramification is as you've experienced, the remote will no longer show up.

    A workaround would be to create an AHK script in your start up folder that ran UR (Run C:\Program Files (x86)\Unified Remote 3\RemoteServerWin.exe), but this really shouldn't be necessary. If you can't find any other fix, maybe a reinstall of UR first.. Just be careful of the potential loss of custom remotes/alterations to existing remotes that you've made, I usually back up my C:\ProgramData\Unified Remote\Remotes folder first.

    Great!

    Alt+PrntScn would be send, !{PrintScreen}

    The list of keys is found at https://autohotkey.com/docs/KeyList.htm. The online help is great (same help file also found in your AHK root install directory), and the forums are well used, you can often get good help quite quickly.

    Ah ok, looks like a syntax error around the path to your AHK file, hence the "invalid escape sequence".
    This might occur if you don't use double backslashes in the path, as opposed to the normal single backslash. For some reason UR wants double backslashes in paths. Is this the problem? If that doesn't fix it, please post your entire monitor.lua code, we'll check it out.

    No worries.

    So you need to install AHK: https://autohotkey.com/download/ahk-install.exe

    Then create an AHK script. Simplest way would be create a blank notepad file, add the text send, {PrintScreen}, then save the file "printscreen.ahk". At this point you can check to make sure your AHK is working by double-clicking it. The clipboard should now contain the screenshot.

    If you want to add a button to an existing remote, find the remote (Windows: C:\ProgramData\Unified Remote\Remotes\Bundled\Unified\Main), go to "remote.lua" file, and add:

    [email protected] PrintScreen
    actions.printscreen = function()
      os.open("C:\\Users\\JoeBlow\\Documents\\PrintScreen.ahk");
    end
    

    changing your path to wherever you saved your printscreen.ahk.

    Then go to file "layout.xml", and add:

    <row>
       <button text="PrintScreen" ontap="printscreen" />
    </row>
    

    The layout file governs how the remote will be presented visually, and what happens when you tap the buttons. In this case ontap="printscreen" will trigger the actions.printscreen in your remote.lua file, which will then trigger the AHK script, which will trigger the printscreen button.

    If you wanted to create a brand new custom remote, follow tutorials:
    https://www.unifiedremote.com/tutorials/how-to-create-a-custom-keyboard-shortcuts-remote
    https://www.unifiedremote.com/tutorials/how-to-install-a-custom-remote
    and just replace the content given in the tutorials with the content above.

    Hope this has been helpful, let me know if you've got more questions.

    I haven't found a direct way. Check out this previous convo for a workaround.

    Here's the documentation for the keys https://github.com/unifiedremote/Docs, shows the correct syntax for all the available keys.
    I only see "apostrophe" available for Linux.

    I'm not sure about the d1, d2, what section of the Action Wizard is that in?

    [email protected] test
    actions.test = function()
        os.open("steam://rungameid/730");
    end
    

    This opens CSGO for me. Find your rungameid number by following the answer on this forum post https://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/149837/how-do-i-find-the-id-for-a-game-on-steam

    You would be replacing the files on your PC, found at C:\ProgramData\Unified Remote\Remotes\Bundled\Unified\Main\VLC.
