Learn how MacUpdate Desktop makes installing apps from MacUpdate.com one-click easy.
Next time, install Xkeys with 1-click

Learn how MacUpdate Desktop can install apps on MacUpdate with the simple click of the Install apps with MacUpdate Desktop icon. Plus, keep all your apps updated.

Xkeys allows you to launch applications and open files and folders just by pressing a function key. Function keys can have submenus, duplicating the functionality of Fkey Expander. It can also be put on standby with a keystroke.

The ability of function keys to launch things is a feature of OS 9 that has been dropped in Mac OS X for some reason. Xkeys brings it back and combines it with the functionality of the Fkey Expander.

What's New

Version 1.1.1 adds the following:
  • Fixed a possible crash during startup.

  • Re-enabled the F15 key.
