    how can i print with 1 click or keyboard shortcut


    I am trying to figure the best way to print a label every time i need it without opening up a program like word and printing from there.

    what i need is to be able to click a icon on my desktop and then my printer prints out the word CHECKED that is it

    i tried making a bat file but it was too long winded waiting for word to load before it printed i want something much quicker

    if i could also have a keyboard shortcut to do it that would be even better for example press
    any ideas on how i could do this would be great or if anyone knows of a program for this would be good too.

    even if something could be designed in VB that could work

    hope everything makes sense

    :)

  3. Create Print Screen HotKey on Mac Keyboard used with my laptop (windows 10)

    Hi!

    I use a Mac keyboard with my pc but there is no print screen key.

    I found a thread a while ago, followed instructions and programmed print screen as a hotkey on F10.

    It was very simple, no additional software, it wasn't right-click on the app shortcut, no modifying registry, nothing like that.

    I want to reverse the process and I don't remember how I created the hotkey in the first place!!!!

    Please HELP if you can!

    Thanks a lot.

    how can i print with 1 click or keyboard shortcut

    Explaining exactly what kind of label would be very helpful to help folks figure out how to do what you want. Like one label always at the top left of a page? Or does the printout have to move from label to label on a sheet of labels? What size label? Doing it manually, can the label be printed using Notepad?

    Keep it warm,

    No idea if this will work or not, but could you print to a file then just copy the file to the printer whenever you want to print it.

    I don't know how to do the copy part but the print to file is a function of the printer.

    .
    Since you have different sized fonts on your label, you need to use Wordpad and not Notepad. Here's a procedure using Window's Wordpad and a batch file to do what you want:

    1. Open Wordpad and setup the text to print on the label the way you want. Save it as a .rtf file. (my file name was tstoneck.rtf)

    2. Open Notepad and copy this batch file into it:
    Code: @echo off rem =This batch file will print with one click from desktop icon rem =Must put quotes around the path if it contains path names that have spaces rem =Using Wordpad start write.exe /p "D:\test\test wordpad documents\tstoneck.rtf"[/quote] 3. Edit the path in the quotes to match the path to your Wordpad rtf file. Do not omit the quotes.

    4. When you save the edited batch file, in the "save as" dialog, enter the name as "print one click.bat". Also change the "save as type:" from "text document (*.txt) to "all files (*.*). This will preserve the .bat suffix for the saved file.

    5. Verify that your saved batch file name is something like "print one click.bat" with the .bat suffix.
    ... (Use any name you want for your batch file. It doesn't have to be "print one click.bat".)

    6. Create a desktop shortcut to that batch file.

    Now when you click the desktop shortcut, the wordpad file will be printed to the default printer with no other action on your part.

    Hope my explanation is clear enough to understand,
