I installed Clover on Win7.But it's shortcut keys(for example Ctrl+T,Ctrl+W,...) does not work.

I re-installed it, then search in Google. Only thing that may be correspond is ExplorerWatcher class that adds on to IE. But it is enable.

How I can solve this problem?

Sometimes the keys stop working because the window has lost keyboard focus. Simply clicking the window should fix that. If other keys are working and/or clicking the window/tab-bar doesn’t fix it, then it may be a bug. See if the latest version works. – Synetech Apr 13 '14 at 4:08

I began using Clover in Windows XP this past weekend and had no problems with it, but when I tried it in Windows 7, I experienced the hotkey problems you mentioned.

The problems I had were because I had extracted it from the installer and was running just the program. This was fine in Windows XP, but in Windows 7 with its different architecture and increased security and access restrictions, some of the hotkeys didn’t work correctly. I fixed it by registering Clover’s .dll and now all the hotkeys work as expected. Yay!

You can fix that by re-installing, making sure to run the installer as admin. Alternately, you can register just the extension:

  1. Open the Start menu
  2. Type cmd
  3. Press Ctrl+⇧Shift+Enter↵
  4. Use the cd command to navigate to the clover folder (defaults to C:\Program Files (x86)\Clover)
  5. Register it with the following command: regsvr32 TabHelper64.dll (on a 32-bit system, use regsvr32 TabHelper32.dll)

What do I do if I don't have admin rights and am using the portable version? ( – Zenadix Jan 14 '15 at 16:08
