Hot Corners is a small freeware app that lets you set anything you can run viz programs, files, directories, websites, control panel items, etc, to be ran when you put your mouse at any one of the four corners of the screen.
Hot Corners for Windows PC
You can choose to use all four corners, 2 of them, 3 of them, whatever. Each corner has its own text box for the path of the file/program/website. If you leave the text box blank, it doesn’t do anything when you move your mouse to that corner.
Make sure to put in the full path e.g. C:\Users\Administrator\Documents; the full website address, for example, www.TheWindowsClub.com; the full address of the program eg. D:\Utilities\QuickRestoreMaker \QuickRestoreMaker.exe Otherwise, the program will crash.
If you do not want a corner to be used as a “hot corner”, then make sure the text box for that corner is completely blank.
