The upper hand of a portable app
The installation process can be skipped as this is a portable utility. This means that if you move the program files to an external data device (e.g. thumb drive), you can take CheckScanCode anywhere with you and run it on the fly, on any computer you come in contact with.
As a result, you should also know that the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to be updated with new entries, and no remains are going to be left behind after its removal.
The interface you are greeted by encompasses a design which can only be described as plain and simple. It includes a few panes in which to input information and a few check boxes. It becomes quite clear that all types of users can find their way around it, regardless of their experience level.
Information you can bring up and copy
This software tool enables you to view the key data, virtual and scan code, and HIP scancode of each keyboard button you press. Aside from that, you can see if you have used the “Alt,” “Shift” and “Ctrl” buttons and save the scan code to the Clipboard, by simply clicking on the main screen.
In conclusion, CheckScanCode is a pretty decent piece of software when it comes to viewing and copying the scan code of a pressed key. The response time is very good, the interface is suitable to all user categories, the CPU and memory usage is low at all times and we did not pick up on any errors or crashes in our tests.
