Create keyboard shortcuts for programs in Windows 7
In Windows 7, you can create various keyboard shortcuts for opening programs efficiently and quickly, without using your mouse or any other pointing device. However before you begin creating keyboard shortcuts for any specific program, make sure to create its shortcut on the desktop or ‘Start’ menu and then assign a keyboard shortcut. Also, it is important to note that keyboard shortcuts on Windows 7 don’t work, in case it conflicts with a keyboard combination, which is already being used in any currently active program.
