Do you need just one or a few special keyboard shortcuts for your favorite program(s)? A quick modification to program shortcuts will get you up and running without installing additional software.
Creating New Keyboard Shortcuts
Go to the start menu shortcut for the program, right-click on it, and select properties.
When the properties window opens click in the shortcut key text area. All that you need to do is choose an appropriate letter for the program (i.e. O for Opera, E for Editra, etc.) and type it in the blank.
You will not need to type any other keys or combination in…the “Ctrl + Alt +” will be automatically entered for you as soon as you type the letter in. Click OK to finish creating the new keyboard shortcut.
Those new keyboard shortcuts will speed up access to your favorite software.
Another example from our system using “I” for Iron Browser.
Certainly much quicker than using the start menu.
If you only need one or just a few special keyboard shortcuts then this method provides a quick and simple solution.
