|Prev||Chapter 8. CrossScanner Setup||Next|
The Activation key is used to toggle CrossScanner from an active mode (awake), to an inactive mode (sleeping) while CrossScanner is running within Windows. Within Setup, you may select the Activation Key (or combination of keys) used to Activate/De-Activate CrossScanner. You may use keys F1 through F12, 0 through 9, and A through Z, by themselves, or in any combination with Ctrl, Shift, and/or Alt. Make sure CrossScanner is not running when you select the Activation Key.
Here you also have the option of setting how CrossScanner will open (Awake (Active) or Asleep (Inactive)) Checking the option On will force CrossScanner to open Asleep. Remember that CrossScanner will always open in whatever state it was in when it is closed (or Windows is Shut Down). See AdvancedAdvanced for other Open Options.
NOTE: Because CrossScanner typically does not have the keyboard focus (this is the window where keystrokes are sent when typed), the Activation Key is not directly sent to CrossScanner. Although CrossScanner watches for the Activation Key(s), for proper operation, you should hold the key(s) until CrossScanner responds by displaying the Awake or Asleep window.
