Custom Hotkeys

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Allows you to add custom hotkeys to a website.

Image from store Custom Hotkeys
Description from store Allows you to set up hotkeys on any website. Use your keyboard to simulate a click on an element on the screen. It uses jQuery selectors. I use it on pocketcasts.com to control the on screen controls. I made them the same as Youtubes keyboard controls. Updated: 7/19/17 --> fixed a bug when typing in an input or textarea firing the event.

  • (2021-11-13) ekarron: I didn't want to hate on this one, but it really needs an update. after using it for ~2 weeks I'm having 2 issues: 1. It doesn't disable itself when typing a comment (typing on search box is fine), so every time you're typing something it fires the actions. 2. it deletes some of the settings randomly, so you have to reset everything every couple of days. Both issues are making using it extremely frustrating, and not worth it.

  • (2021-01-08, v:1.1) Zehua Mai: Does it support creating combination keys? Like (command + enter)
    Hi, thanks for creating this, it works! But I wonder if it supports combination keys like command+enter, if so, how do I config it as the value of "key"? Thank you!
  • (2019-08-19, v:1.1) Sara Kristensen: Some examples would do wonders
    Would have been nice with a little more base info on how to actually use it as it pertains to filling in whatever it needs to become a shortcut. There isn't any website link that can enlighten you either :S As it stands, I have no clue how to make a shortcut.

  • (2017-07-03, v:1.0) George Zackrison: Search Box Interuption
    If there is a search box on a page and you try to type in it, it will do the commands that I have set up in the hotkeys configuration. Maybe if the cursor is in a textfield it could ignore what I'm typing temporarily.
