Intellitype Pro is a nice software that helps me when I'm using my Ms keyboard. When I'm on the road using my laptop's built-in keyboard it interprets some of the keys incorrectly and reacts on them, for instance the Fn + Down Arrow opens Windows Live Messenger (in addition to lowering brightness, which is governed by Dell's driver).

I want to stop Intellitype when I'm on the road and reload it when I'm home using the external keyboard.

Note: original problem (conflict with itype) posted here.

The easiest way to do this is to create two batch files and place links to them in the start menu. It's even possible to create hotkeys to each making it more accessible.

The batch to stop Intellitype should contain the following command:

    taskkill /IM itype.exe /T /F

The batch to reload Intellitype should just run itype.exe, and depending on itype.exe's location should contain:

"c:\Program Files\Microsoft IntelliType Pro\itype.exe"

Please note that these have been tested on Windows 7 only.
