  1. Pressing a Media Key "Presses" Another Key In Certain Programs


    My problem is that pressing my media keys (volume up, down, play/pause, etc.) also does a certain function as of what another key does. Such as pressing the mute button would mute my PC, but would also "press" the D key. This probably doesn't make sense, but it does happen. Note that this only happens when I play my games, other programs it wouldn't really do any affect other than the intended function, also that when using media keys in an ingame chatbox, this wouldn't type that 2nd key. I'm using a laptop, with the integrated keyboard.

    Booting without press any key

    @dhievm go ahead and list the model number that gives exact specs/info.


    Does it stop right at the Toshiba logo and sit there? Will it sit forever til you press a key, or will it eventually work after so long?

    Zippy! Automatic Button Pressing program.

    Wouldn't it have been more expedient to ditch the GUI and make Zippy! a hot key activated app?
    (Similar to how TPUCapture works)
    For instance ... Zippy! is running in the background. The user presses a key combo (say Alt-Z) to tell Zippy! to repeat the next key/mouse click it sees until the hot key combo is pressed again?
    So Alt+Z and then left mouse click tells Zippy! to repeat the left mouse click until Alt+Z is pressed again.
    That would completely eliminate the need for profiles.

    Just a suggestion for version 2.0 *Wink Pressing a Media Key "Presses" Another Key In Certain Programs ;)
    As always, good work Ford. Definitely useful with Minecraft. *Toast :toast:
