Window Transparency Shortcut
Short of using "View" and checking the box for "Window Transparency" or not, is there any native SecureCRT way to shortcut switching back and forth between transparent and opaque settings?

Hi devrick,

What version of SecureCRT are you using?

On what platform/OS?

Almost any Menu Function can be configured to a button or keymap in SecureCRT.

Here are the steps to create a hotkey:
  • Go to Terminal / Emulation / Mapped Keys category of Session Options
  • Choose Map a Key... button
  • Press the key combination you wish to use
  • Change Function to Menu Function
  • OK the dialogs
You're all set!

The Table of Keymap Functions is found in the Configuring the Keyboard / Table of Keymap Functions Help topic.

We recommend configuring keymaps in Terminal / Emulation Mapped Keys category because it's one less file to worry about (as opposed to .key file).

To apply that same keymap to all (or some sessions), you would use Default session.

That is exactly what I was looking for and that gets the job done. Thank you very much!
