How to create your own shortcut keys in Windows

 By Marc Saltzman
 .Whether you’re running Windows XP, Vista or 7, a fast way to open up a program you use a lot is to create your own custom shortcut. And it’s a lot easier to
 do this than you think. Check it out.

Windows already ship with dozens of handy shortcuts for opening and closing files, copying and pasting, selecting multiple files, undoing a mistake, bolding and underlining, and the list goes on and on.

But what if you wanted to create your very own shortcuts to commonly used programs, such as Photoshop, World of Warcraft, Skype, Internet Explorer or iTunes?

It’s a breeze, sister.
Simply follow these simple steps in Windows XP or newer:

1. Right mouse-click on the desktop shortcut, and then click Properties (the last option).

2. On the Shortcut tab, you’ll see an option called Shortcut key — but the window should be blank.

3. Now press the keyboard combination that you want to use to start the program. The shortcut must consist of one character (a letter, number or symbol), plus at least two of the following three keys: CTRL, ALT, and SHIFT.

4. Click OK or Apply.

That’s it! Now when you want to open that particular program you can do so in a much quicker fashion.
