ControlPad App Launcher
Launch applications with the numeric keypad
Turn the numeric keypad of your keyboard to a Windows command execution system.
Once ControlPad is running, press and hold the * key on the numeric keypad, for about 1 second.
At this point, a small window will pop up, allowing you to enter any keyword or numeric code.
Pressing the code followed by Enter will execute the associated command.
Commands are easily configured through the same interface - activate the input dialog (press and hold *), enter the desired code and press the numpad Divide (/) button to associate a new command.
You may also use words instead of numeric codes.
For laptop users (without a numeric keypad), there is a special Laptop Mode feature which will use F12 (press and hold) instead of * as the launch key.
