Extra Keys Pro v2.2.5

Type any accented characters for French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Scandinavian and many other languages. Also Cyrillic, Greek and many other special symbols. This small Windows only desktop tool enables easy input of letters and symbols that may not appear on your normal keyboard.

This is simply an alternative to to other methods such as the Windows character map. Many people have found Extra Keys a convenient, easy option and it requires no configuration changes to your system.

Using the mouse, each letter will be typed directly into the selected application, at the current cursor position. The character is also copied to the Clipboard. In some situations, typing directly into another program may not work but the character can still be inserted by simply using Paste.

Choice of 'key sets' - offers characters from the Western and Eastern European 'Latin' range, Cyrillic, Greek, Georgian and Armenian alphabets. Certain symbols may already present on some keyboard layouts, but are not readily accessible on other international layouts.

When the characters are entered into your your application, most will display correctly with common Windows fonts. A few will need recent font file versions or an appropriate font choice.

Safe to use - Extra Keys synthesizes keystrokes, exactly as if entered from the real keyboard. It does nothing else and does not interfere with the target applications in any way. Independent of the Windows operating system, it needs no special installation.

Small, simple and minimal - the on-screen panel of keys is designed to be as compact as possible. A 'more/less' button enables rapid switching between display of alphabetic characters only or an expanded panel to add punctuation marks and special symbols. The program itself is also very small in memory, despite including its own embedded character font.

Quick to access - the button panel window minimizes to a system-tray icon, so it can be always available at a single click. The icon may optionally be loaded at Windows startup.

Extra Keys Pro is a special edition based on the basic Extra Keys tool but with the important additional feature of being able to output each character in several different encoded formats. Like the standard edition it is now free to use.

In this case "Pro" stands for "Programmer". If you need to edit HTML web pages or program source code files then this is the edition for you.

There are many situations when it is not safe to use the plain character in source files They should instead be entered as an HTML entity, decimal or hexadecimal code. Extra Keys Pro gives a method to do this very quickly and easily, with a single click and without needing to remember any codes.

As well as sending plain characters to other applications and the Windows clipboard (exactly the same as the standard edition) the Pro edition is able to output in these formats:

HTML entity name
HTML entity code as decimal
HTML entity code as hexadecimal
Unicode code point
"\u" escaped hexadecimal
percent encoded UTF8
decimal character code
hexadecimal character code, with 3 different prefixes (0x, $ or &H)
