We call a system global shortcut as a
Capslox uses the following symbols to represent hotkeys:
- ⇪: Caps Lock
- ⌘: Command
- ⌥: Option
- ⌃: Control
- ⇧: Shift
For example: ⌘⇪E means Caps Lock + Command + E
Capslox’s key scheme will try to follow a rule: See Command key as “enhanced key”. In other words, if we see the function of Caps Lock + a single key as a basic function, in most cases, we will get an enhanced function if we add a Command key to this basic hotkey, for example: Caps Lock + E / D / S / F is Moving Up / Down / Left / Right, then Caps Lock + Command + E / D / S / F will be Moving Up / Down / Left / Right multiple times.

With Window Binding, you can bind the currently active window to a hotkey, and then activate / minimize the window by pressing this hotkey.
The logic when pressing the activate hotkey is as follows:
- If the bound window is the currently active window, minimize it;
- If the bound window exists and is not currently active, activate it;
- If the bound window doesn’t exist, and its application has other windows, then bind one of them;
- If the application to which the bound window belongs is not running, then run the application and bind its window.
