Set key combination to perform action?

Let's say I'm using Finder and I want to have this:
1 - Shortcut is used (Ctrl+Alt+Cmd+G). KM is now ready to accept more instructions
2 - I hit the M key. KM is still waiting for more instructions on actions that use the M key
3 - I hit the B key. KM now knows that the combination of those 3 "actions" is to open the Main Backups folder on my computer.

Is this possible natively? Or would it be super complex and involve AppleScript?


Hi @iamdannywyatt - this recent discussion covers an almost identical question:

You might want to try searching the KM forum for other similar topics!

Thank you so much!
That thread seems filled with great tips and knowledge. Definitely will check it out :slight_smile:

So for my particular scenario at the moment what I did as a workaround was:
I set up F4 to start a macro set to Trigger Macro by Name
Then I have another macro group where I have all the macros I want to have available. Since this workflow is for Finder to go to certain folders, I named by macros based on the key combination so for example if I want finder to go to Main Backups folder, I will name the macro mb - Go to Main Backups folder.
Now all I need to do is hit F4 > mb. This is the list I have so far and it's been working :slight_smile:
