Windows Hotkey Explorer Shows You Global Shortcut Keys

Windows hotkey explorer is a decent , which displays all the globally registered hotkeys on Windows. With the help of this tool, you might come across some very useful hotkeys thanks to it.

Techie Buzz Verdict

This is a good which you can use to find out the globally registered hotkeys on any computer. However, it would be good if it could also show shortcut keys registered by different applications.

I tested this on and it worked great. However, one annoying problem with the software is that, the Alt + Tab switch will stop working while this app is open, it starts working after you close it though.

AppPaths Exports Installed Software as a List

AppPaths is a handy program which will display a list of installed software and allow you to export it or save the list as a file.


The app is both a and Portable Software. However, it only does one part of what it promises. It can only display the installed software list. The Save button is practically useless as it does not do anything. I searched high and low but could not find the file, this in turn makes this software not so good on our list.

Techie Buzz Verdict

We hope the developer of the application is reading this and will let us know where the application list is saved? We searched high and low but could not find it, while you are reading this, kindly add an option to export the data as both a HTML or text file.

We would have rated this app much higher, but alas for the missing save option, or mysterious save location as we might call it.

Auto Login and Lock Windows

Whenever you start or restart your PC, you have to key in your username and password for the actual startup process to commence. So, if you restarted your PC and went to get a cup of coffee, you will still have to wait a good 30-40 seconds before you can start working on.

Auto Login and Lock is a handy software which could save you some time here. It will automatically login to Windows on startup and then lock Windows so that a password is still required to login. However, since the startup process is already underway, you can just login and start working when you return with your cup of coffee.

It is a pretty useful  . We definitely recommend it to users.

Registry Live Watch is a and which monitors the Windows Registry for changes and updates and displays them to you. In addition to that, it will also allow you to perform a certain action when a registry entry is updated.

Techie Buzz Verdict

Registry Watcher can come in pretty handy to developers and application debuggers, who want to monitor the registry for changes.

You will need to provide which key Registry Watcher should be tracking, this will allow users to quickly debug just single applications for problems. Overall we don’t see much use of it for anything else than development or debugging purposes.
