Three days after my nervous breakdown and lo! i am saved! Both my mind and spirit (still working on my body). If you recall, Launchy, SlickRun, the WinKey, and even Alt+Tab were not working on my remote desktop connection because I had to launch remote desktop within the context of a Citrix application.
Launchy has been re-enabled simply by disabling it in my laptop. I suppose that means that since Alt+Space isn't handled there, the keystroke is passed into Remote Desktop. Frankly, I don't care. I can find things again!
AutoHotKey's status has been bumped from "great utility" to "the most awesome computer application ever invented". Thanks to it, I have remapped SlickRun to RightCtrl+R. More importantly are the following two lines I've added to the AutoHotKey script:
RControl & RShift::AltTab
RControl & Enter::ShiftAltTab
This is taken directly from the AutoHotKey documentation. What it means is that I can Alt-Tab my way through applications by holding down RightCtrl and repeatedly pressing RightShift. Ditto for going the other direction by pressing RightCtrl and Enter. And since I rarely use the right Ctrl, Alt, and Shift keys, there is little chance it will interfere with, say, a ReSharper shortcut I use.
Hello keyboard, my old friend! I'm free to type on you again!
