Pros & Cons:

Seems to be able to handle non-text keystrokes, but without a quick list of the supported keys.
Need to do some unusual maneuvering to get to the Hotkeys area, a tiny window without all options spelled out.

Our Review:

FlashTray Pro is a system tray utility packed with features. Besides working as a launcher for your favorite applications, folders or documents, it also functions as a boilerplate text manager using keyboard macros.

As of the version under review, compared with other competitors in this category, it seems to try to do too many other things. Although you can remove most of the junk from the menu, you still would need to do some unusual maneuvering to get to the Hotkeys area - and when you do, it's a really tiny window with not all of the options spelled out for you.

It seems to be able to handle non-text keystrokes, but it doesn't give you a quick list of the supported keys.
