Add Windows keyboard shortcuts via Autohotkey

You can add Windows keyboard shortcuts with Autohotkey.

#IfWinActive ahk_exe Brave.exe
; https://community.brave.com/t/brave-browser-shortcuts-currently-for-windows-only/10001
; CTRL-, = Settings
; CTRL-[ = Back
; CTRL-] = Forward
F2::Send ^t ; New tab
F3::Send ^+{TAB} ; Previous tab
F4::Send ^{TAB} ; Next tab
F6::Send ^w ; Close tab
F7::Send ^f ; Find
F8::Send ^+o ; Bookmarks
F9::Send ^l ; Focus on address bar
^h::Send ^y ; CTRL-H = History
#IfWinActive ; end Brave block

Is that an extension ? Do you mind providing more info on this?


#3

This is not an extension. Autohotkey is a separate, free program that can activate various macros that you can define. I have shown a script that Autohotkey can run, to enable keyboard shortcuts.


#4

Is this something that can be integrated with Brave? Or is this something you are suggesting other users to use it? Or something that is failing with Brave. Sorry I am unable to understand.


#5

Major Web browsers provide ways for users to assign keyboard shortcuts to browser functions. Since Brave does not provide this-- a significant limitation, I would say-- the Autohotkey script provides a workaround that serves the same purpose. The script can run in addition to Brave and provide the user with keyboard functions that will work in Brave.
