Hi. I have a quite simple problem but can`t figure it our.
I want to setup text expansion command for moving file in windows explorer but first the strokesplus sending backspace command to file explorer ( according to program algorytm ) and changing my folder cause going up.
For example if I put 12 - strokesplus first sending two times backspace ( cause is two digital) and this twice comand changing folder in my file explorer.
So I wondering is there any way to cover this backspace command for any program , making me transparent backspace and normally working command after that?
I am not sure I am writing this in good way but there is only way which I understand ..sorry gays for that :) I hope you will understand what I looking for.

Yeah, the text expansion is intended to backspace and replace text, not trigger an event.

You would need to create this logic yourself via the keyboard hook event shown here:

You'd have to see if Explorer is the active window, then keep track of the key press(es), and react accordingly - it will likely be somewhat complicated to do just right...but it is possible.
