Configuration of browsers/applications

Although KeyPass was originally designed with launching of URLs in mind, it was later extended to work with other applications. This section seeks to illustrate some of the other possible scenarios:

Launch a URL. This is the most common case. You enter an URL (eg. http://www.dobysoft.com) in the Web Address field. When you launch that entry, the URL is loaded in either the default web browser or another application that you have defined.

Launch a document. If you wish to launch a certain document (eg. finance.xls) when you double-click on an entry, you should enter its full path/filename in the Web Address field. Then when you launch that entry, the document is loaded in either the default associated application (eg. Microsoft Excel) or another application that you have defined.

Launch a session. Some applications allow you to create "sessions" by name and load them directly in the command line arguments when starting the application. An example is Putty where you can create sessions containing information such as the host name and the connection protocol etc. and launch it with "putty.exe -load [session_name]". So to automatically launch a Putty session, you should put the session name in the Web Address field and configure that entry to launch with Putty. Putty's EXE path should be configured as "\path_to_putty\putty.exe -load". Then when you double-click on the entry, the session whose name is specified in the Web Address field will be loaded in Putty.
