The following python modules have to be available :

Certain features such submenu may not be available depending on your operating system, please refer to pystray documentation for more info on this. There won’t be any issues on Windows 10 as of my knowledge.

Buttons In System Tray

tray sample


(Enabled by default)

The Active check allow you to activate/deactivate all the features. This includes abbreviations, date and time, writing from clipboard, media controls etc.

Although Active starts the abbreviations and date and time, it will not re-enable the write from clipboard or media control feature if they was enabled before. This has to be manually enabled after re-activation.


Exit from the program.

Write from Clipboard

The write from clipboard feature will enable writing from clipboard.

The difference between pasting text and writing from clipboard is that in write from clipboard text is entered by sending key press events to the system, this allows the user to “paste” text into places where only typing is allowed, such as certain forms, text boxes in certain applications etc.

Once enabled all ctrl + v events will be suppressed, therefore no items other than text can be pasted using ctrl + v.


(Enabled when Active)

Abbreviations have to be added in the abbr.json file in the following format :

    "abbrs": {
        "short": "loooooooong",
        "newshort": "newloooong"
    "mails": {
        "example1000": "",
        "sample123": ""

If there is no abbr.json file in the same directory as the program file, it will create a new abbr.json file with the basic format.

Abbreviations under the abbr section, when typed will be replaced with their given value after pressing space.

E-mail ids under mails section when typed will be completed with the domain provided on pressing space.

Date and Time

(Enabled when Active)

On typing dtt and pressing space dtt will be replaced by the current date and time.

Media Control

(Enabled by default)

For keyboards that don’t have a media play/pause key pressing alt + ` (default hotkey) will play/pause the media playing in the background (only for supported applications like chrome, vlc etc.)
