Enables you to activate and maximize any open window with a hotkey which it allows you to assign to the window. (Useful when working with a large number of open windows, and you frequently need to change windows).
The app will assign the currently active window a hotkey when you use it's "insert into the HotWind list" hotkey (control-windows-I by default). The hotkeys are recycled as soon as the window closes, and are formed from the numeric digits 0 through 9 with modifiers which you specify in its options dialog. You also can specify whether the hotkey digits are assigned from the left to the right, or vice versa (this helps in accomodating your "handedness" preference).
(Much faster than constantly alt-tabbing to the window you want).

Changed required version of Window-Eyes, downgrading it to 7.5 from 8.4. This should prevent an error at least one user running 7.5 was reporting.

Now activates the desired window more reliably, by first minimizing all other windows (before doing this, some programs would "hold" the active window, even when another window was activated).
