To set a program keyboard shortcut :
- Click the Start menu, and then click All Programs. Choose the program that you want to start with a keyboard shortcut (i.e. Internet Explorer), right click and then click Properties.
Note: This can also be implemented on another applications such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, etc. which you frequently used.
- Put the cursor on the Shortcut key box. Now press the letter on your keyboard that
you want the program to be started.
- Choose the letter that easy to remember —for example, press I for Microsoft Internet
Note: You can use either uppercase or lowercase letters when creating your keyboard shortcuts—and when accessing them later. In the Shortcut key box, Microsoft Windows XP automatically adds Ctrl + Alt + before the key you pressed.
- Click OK
- Now test your shortcut. Hold down the CTRL and ALT keys, and then press the letter
Note : if you don’t have access right on editing the standard shortcut, You will be
prompted error message “Access is denied “
In this case you need to create your new own shortcut based on the standard shortcut
on your desktop or directly pointing to the program files & then you will be able to create
your keyboard shortcut.
