I often create account (Jira, Subversion, FTP,...) so I need good password generator. For long time I used PC Tools Secure Password Generator web page with two presets and it worked. Except there was a lot of copy-pasting.

Lately I try to simplify my life so I had a "what if I could just..." moment and that instance the wapgUI was born.

It's a user interface for an ancient pronounceable password generator called APG, or in the case of Win32 port wapg.

Using AutoHotKey I can now press Win + S to start wapgUI which will display a list of 10 freshly generated passwords. I pick one (using enter or double click) and the password is copied on the clipboard for instant pasting where new password is needed.

Here is the AHK script I use for launching:

<#S::
    SetTitleMatchMode, 2
    IfWinExist, wapgUI
    {
        WinActivate
    }
    Else
    {
        Run, C:\Shared Folder\Tools\wapgUI\wapgUI.exe
        WinWait, wapgUI
        WinActivate
    }
    Return

The password strength, length and allowed characters parameters for wapg can be set in wapgUI.exe.file.

Includes wapg binaries by Adel I. Mirzazhanov and famfamfam silk icon.
