Mac power users use the keyboard for everything, and hardly touch the mouse or touchscreen (the former is so 1989, and the latter is slow and imprecise). If you have a hankering’ for a little more git up ‘n go from your Mac, take a look at Keyboard Cowboy.
Flying Fingers Of Fun
What good are hotkeys? Speed. Instead of moving your hand from keyboard to mouse or trackpad, a few clicks on the keyboard springs something into action.
Keyboard Cowboy is a Mac hotkey shortcut manager. Use it to setup keyboard hotkeys to launch apps, switch to another app, open files or folders, even pop up a website URL in your browser.
That’s the power of keyboard shortcuts. Keyboard Cowboy lets you setup and manage hotkey shortcuts.
Setting up a keyboard shortcut is easy enough, but Keyboard Cowboy gallops into overdrive with Scopes.
Scopes add a little context, actions, if you will, to your shortcuts. They work with the same keystrokes but perform extra functions depending upon the app you’re using.
Once you setup keyboard shortcuts and add Scopes’ actions, well, it just works.
Wait. There’s more.
Keyboard Cowboy also features Bundle Keys. Add multiple activation keystrokes as a bundle. Activate it from the keyboard and it’s like running multiple hotkey combos at once.
This is a clever app that easily moves the average Mac user into the power user category. You’ll find yourself using the mouse or trackpad less, they keyboard more, and that usually means you can save precious time and effort.
