I'm a left handed owner of a Touch Pro (AT&T Fuze) and I got sick of having to try to hit the little x button when using my device one-handed.

As a result, I made these two tiny (4k) native c++ applications that open the start menu and hit the OK/Close button. That's it. Nice and simple. Works ideally for me with the (useless) PTT button located on the left side below the volume rocker -- perfect thumb positioning! I've mapped the start button executable to PTT short-press and ok/close to PTT long-press and I couldn't be happier.

I'm sure there must be other solutions already available but I looked around a bit and couldn't find an easy one so I made my own instead.

The zip contains two files:
skey.exe opens the start menu.
okey.exe hits the ok/close button.

Enjoy!

I wish, I could assign your start button executable to the Home button, because it does the same as the End Call Button. :(

I can't find this button, can you show me on a pic please? Thanks.
Edit: Never mind, I thought this was in the Touch Diamond section, I also thought the Touch Pro was identical besides the keyboard and the flash.

Hi, thank you very much for these files, there are really helpful.

I was wondering, is it possible to make an application as in "Home" button, to get you back to the Today screen?
And one for the "Back" button, maybe?

I am not sure if those applications already exist in Windows folder, somebody knows?

thank you very much

Alright for lefties! Thanks so much! I also hate how everything is so right-handed oriented :( Like the TF3D tabs too. The people are on the right side :| And everything else too.
