Hi, Is there a way to create a hotkey that will type in my email address in any program or web page when I need to?

Hi LorSmi,

I have no idea about a hotkey, what I would do is to open Wordpad and type my email address and save the file to the desktop or panel, simply copy and paste when needed. I have no other suggestions for you. :)

I had the same dilemma, and have used this program since, I think, Windows 7

Winhotkey

Later. Thought it might improve any doubts, here is my hotkey comb. Naturally I have hidden the details!:cool:

Perhaps the OP has gone elsewhere now. But, if you are still watching, here is another one I have jusy constructed to show you the potential of the little utility:

Perhaps you could mark the thread "Solved" as it will help others

Maybe davehc or OP has found the answer some where else.

But....what the OP want's is called a Macro Key.....yes that can be done. Usually with keyboards that have this feature built in. I always look for keyboards that have it. Especially for my gaming needs. I especially like to make macro key for my degree symbol.... 25°C. And just like that the little symbol is put right in. I love it. My old Logitech G510 had 18 pre set G keys ready. I only used 10 or so. My new Razer Huntsman Elite doesn't have any dedicated G keys so I assigned the degree symbol to my F1 key.

An excellent and neater solution. My solution is free, of course. With the program mentioned, I have chosen to enter the windows key and two others, whenever I want to print out the prewritten lable.
