Older Tip for Pre-IE7: Don't want all webpages to open in the same window? This is an IE setting. In IE, choose Tools | Internet Options | Advanced. Uncheck “reuse browser windows for launching shortcuts”.
Advanced Web Tip: Want to launch addresses
that don't start with www and don't end in .com, .net, etc?
Open Regedit > HKCU\Software\Bayden Systems\SlickRun
Right Click > New > String Value
Rename New Value #1 to URLExtensions
Modify > Value data: .com,.net,.org,.de,.at,.ch
There are a number of macros which you can place in the Filename field when ADDing a new MagicWord:
|@SETPOS@||Move SlickRun to the <x>,<y>,<size> position listed in the Parameters box. Type SAVEPOS in SlickRun to automatically create a new MagicWord which uses this command.|
|@SHUTDOWN@||Show the WinXP Shutdown dialog.|
|@STANDBY@||Place computer in standby mode. (Requires SlickRun v3.0+ and Windows2000+)|
|@HIBERNATE@||Place your computer in hibernate mode. (Requires SlickRun v3.4+ and hibernation enabled in Windows Setup).|
|@SCREENSAVE@||Launch your screensaver|
|@MULTI@||A "MultiWord" that
executes multiple MagicWords. Set the Filename field to @MULTI@ and
set the parameters field to a @ delimited list of MagicWords to be executed.
For instance, I use:
....which launches these four things with a single MagicWord.
Note that if you are launching WebWords with MultiWords, you MUST use the following format for those WebWords:
Filename: iexplore.exe <---------- if you just put the URL here, IE might open all of your pages in the same window, even if you told it not to using Tools | Internet Options | Advanced, Reuse Browser Windows for launching shortcuts.
Note: The "Test MagicWord" button does not work for @MULTI@ shortcuts.
For each extra
@ between commands in a @MULTI@Word, an additional second is paused.
|$D$||$D$ is replaced with the
drive that SlickRun is running from. Very useful when running SlickRun for
Notes: Run EditPadPro from the USB drive SlickRun is running from
Note: The Test MagicWord button does not currently work for MagicWords that use the $D$ macro.
|$C$||$C$ is replaced with contents of the Clipboard.|
|@calendar@||Opens a simple calendar (Also available on the context menu).|
There are a few event handler MagicWords that will fire if they exist...
|_startup||Fires when SlickRun starts|
|_displaychange||Fires when the Windows resolution
changes. Useful when combined with a call to @SETPOS@ or CORNER, to ensure
that after Windows moves your SlickRun window around due to
login/logout/screensaver, SlickRun will go back to your preferred location.
Passes the new resolution in parameters.
|_a||Fires when the user hits ALT+ENTER when inputing text. See the default DEFINE MagicWord to see how this is used.|
|_DEFAULT||If you create a MagicWord named "_DEFAULT", any
command which "falls through" will trigger that command. For instance,
here's one that will search for anything typed on Google.
Notes: Search for whatever is typed on GOOGLE.
