Remap the long-press of the home key

Recommended Posts

By default, holding down the Home key will bring up the quick list to set profile, etc. But if you want that key to do launch a program, just take a shortcut of an app you want to launch, copy & rename it to Long_Home (the .lnk extension is hidden) and *copy it to the windows folder*.

I have mine mapped to a mortscript that runs Oxios CloseApps (http://www.oxios.com/memory/) and then close the resulting window for a quick way to tell all apps to close and free up some memory / cpu.

Some of the info came from here:


You can probably remap some other keys as well, such as giving the camera button dual functions.

is there a way to map the key to directly lock the phone so all i will have to do is hold down the button to lock it?

Have it run vjdevicelock.exe (http://www.vijay555.com/?Releases:VJDeviceLock).

The .cab file is most likely locked for installation of PocketPC. If it is, extract the .exe with this program: http://www.codeppc.com/telechargements/msceinf/msceinf.htm or use the attached file.
