The "Hot Keys" panel

    When you click on the "Hot Keys" tab, a panel appears with controls for configuring quick keystrokes for controlling your PowerKey outlets.

    These hot keys work system-wide; no matter what you're doing on your computer, you can type one of these keystrokes to immediately control your PowerKey outlets.

Hot key list

    The main part of the "Hot Keys" panel is a list showing all of the hot keys you have defined.

    You can enable and disable hot keys by checking and unchecking the "On" box next to each hot key.

    You can customize the appearance of the hot key list in several ways:
    To sort the list by a chosen column, click on its header. Click again to reverse the direction of the sorting.
     
    To move a column, drag its header to the left or right.
     
    To resize a column, drag the right edge of its header.

Editing buttons

    The buttons at the bottom of the list let you manage your hot keys:
    Click the New Hot Key... button to define a new hot key. The hot key editor dialog box will appear.
     
    Select a hot key in the list and click the Edit... button (or double-click on the hot key) to edit it. The hot key editor dialog box will appear.
     
    Select a hot key in the list and click the Delete button to delete it.

    Tip: You can also hold down the "control" key and select an hot key (or right-click using a two-button mouse). This opens a "contextual menu" that shows the same commands as the editing buttons.
