How do I make an application that I can make the ESC key close a window? Or really any key (I can change if I want to).
Please help. Thanks
Here is what I have and I can’t get it to work.
-- close window with "ESC"
tell application "System Events"
tell application "Finder" to activate
key code 53
I want to change the command from, Command > W, to, esc to close a window in general.
Thanks! And just incase the ESC key, key code is: 53.
AppleScript cannot track keystrokes.
There are some third party tools like QuickSilver or QuicKeys which can map keys
ControllerMate can remap keys too.
Basically you tell ControllerMate “when I see the ESC key, instead output command-W”
