I've updated HoeKey to 1.19.  Get the .exe from the usual spot, http://www.bcheck.net/apps/hoe.htm

Fixed a couple of issues raised over the last 5 years:
  • Enable \r in strings so MsgBox can have multiple lines. e.g. Foo\r\nbar
  • Add %C to get the directory HoeKey was started from.
A lot has certainly changed since I originally wrote this app.  Happy to see people still using it :)

Let me know any issues you run into, and any features you may be interested in.

Hi, Tim, I'm the website owner of http://www.topfreeware.net.

Thank you for creating this free software.
Your program has been listed under the utilities category on the site for quite a while.

I'm just wondering if this now works on Windows 10.
I have linked to your site for the download but there is no information on what operating system it runs on?

Regards,

Timothy Rice

No - I don't know of a way you could do it.  So I added a new command, SetBrightness.  You use it like so:

Key=SetBrightness|Optional Monitor #|Absolute brightness 0-100|Relative brightness -100 - 100

So a typical use would be:
~N=SetBrightness|||10  ; increase brightness by 10%
~_N=SetBrightness|||-10 ; decrease brightness by 10%

If absolute value is specified, relative is ignored.  If monitor isn't specified, all are changed.

Let me know if that works for you!
