I'd like to use the following keystrokes in a dragon or knowbrainer command:

   Ctrl+Win+Alt+T

I've searched the forum, but I've not been able to find one that will allow me to use the Windows key.

Any help in putting together a script would be appreciated.

Assuming you're using 15.6 (I don't think it works in earlier versions of Dragon, try this:

SendKeys "{WindowsHold}^%t"

Edit: This may work in Advanced Scripting.  I don't know about Knowbrainer.

Hi, just wanted to say thank you for posting this information, and example, I found this looking for something else, and the Windows hold key parameter, with proper SendKeys syntax was super helpful. Ended up rewriting a couple of clunky commands using HeardWord, left over from 15.3 and created a couple new ones because they were easy to write now.

Thanks!

The same script will work in KnowBrainer and you can verbally create this command in Dragon on KnowBrainer

I think you can very easily do this in DVC scripting:

 

SendSystemKeys "{Ctrl+Win+Alt+t}"

 

So far, I haven't tried DVC SendKeys commands with three modifiers yet. Let me know if that works.

 

I attached the command and I've named it "testing".
