Binding the SlickRun HotKey to Windows-R (and my silent quest for a 1970's style green screen console)
Everyone knows that I loves me some SlickRun. I'm waiting for QuickSilver for Windows (although some feel that's already arrived as AppRocket - I'm not so sure).
I bind SlickRun (with large fonts) to my Windows-R key, but apparently it's not very obvious how to do this. ;)
Here's how: Edit your slickrun.ini in Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\SlickRun\SlickRun.ini and add/change "GrabWinR=1" in the [General] section as seen at right.
I find the whole "Kermit Green on Black" large font color scheme very comforting.
Aside: Does an app like the Mac's GLTerminal (originally written by James A. McCombe and some how leaked/escaped) exist for Windows? Does Chris Sells want to write this in Avalon? This would be a rocking sweet Avalon application that I'd happily download the WinFX library for. It could sweep the net. ;)
Maybe casey will take up the challenge, or perhaps I'll have to learn how to do it myself. Another idea would be to modify the console application from SourceForge.
