In my previous post we discussed about the common keyboard shortcuts. As I said earlier keyboard shortcuts are always a milestone to open application simply and quickly.  Here I would to share a trick which you can use to customize the keyboard shortcuts for regularly using application programs. So you can launch application when the combination of keys is pressed which you entered as the Shortcut Key for that application.

To create Shortcut key for any application in Windows:

1. Right click the program icon and select Properties.
2. Then select the Shortcut tab
3. Click in Shortcut key text box
4. Enter the keyboard shortcut for that program.

5. Press OK to exit
6. Use the Keyboard shortcut combo to launch the application.
