Looking for a shortcut to Activate Steam Keys
I just got around to re-installing this skin again after quite a while on my new rig; it's definitely superior to the Vanilla UI, except I'm really missing the Steam Key activation shortcut that Vanilla had in the lower left-hand corner.

I buy a lot of bundles, so I frequently need to activate keys manually and would like (optimally) a 1-click solution, or at least a way to avoid having to use the dropdown menu each time I go to activate a key through the wizard; It'd be nice to have a button for it, but I could make do just as well with a hotkey or even a desktop shortcut. Does anyone have a good solution for this?

We might do an extra for it in our unofficial patch.

Very cool I'd love to see that! In the mean time; for anyone that goes searching for this.

I found a reddit thread that told me that I could create a macro shortcut to

steam://open/activateproduct

it works great for me and I don't even have to have a steam window active to activate my keys.

Thanks for the quick reply and the great UI!

Yeah better stick to this method. I took a look and making that extra will require adding support for the other ones too. Also we are not the official creators of the skin.Our patch only focuses on keeping it stable, the real creator is Dom.
