if Menu #1 short cut key is "Alt +1", how to use fastkeys to use mouse middle button to send key stroke "Alt +1" to open start menu?
Thanks.

Create a shortcut (Type: Command):

Code: Select all

SendLevel 1
Send, !1
SendLevel 0

Hi Marko, thanks.

Further to my question, is the fastkeys able to use "click both left and right mouse buttons" to send "Alt +1"?

Sure, double-click on a key field to define any shortcut combination according to Autohotkey syntax:

Code: Select all

~LButton & RButton
Be careful to include ~ character to allow the buttons native functions.

Hi Tom, I didn't get you. It appears to me that your reply is how to etup a shortcut key to send "left + right" click.

but what I intended to do is another way around: clicking left + right together and then send a key combination, e.g. "alt +1" .

Thanks in advance.

No, double-click on a shortcut field and copy the above code as an advanced shortcut. Then set a command as you like, for example Send, !1

Thanks, Tom. I should have read your instruction more carefully. :D
also, just realised that clicking the shortcut field can be used to set whatever the shortcut keys I want to use. A wonderful thought!
