Quick Access to Anything Without a Mouse!

If your someone like me who wants quick access to everything then just listen to what I have to say. This article will tell you how to makes shortcuts on your keyboard that are Ctrl + Alt + "Any Key Of Your Choice." Heres what you have to do:

1. Make shortcuts of the programs you want shortcuts to somewhere in your start menu.

2. Right click on one of them and click on Properties.

3. Now click on Shortcut if its not already there.

4. Click on ShortCut Key's white area box and type a letter other than ones used by XP like Ctrl Alt Del and stuff. I used the number 1 through 0 (after 9).

Do that and it should work. If it doesn't make sure its in the Programs part of the Start Menu, I haven't tried outside programs, if it still doesn't work go to the help section and ask a microsoft person.

    Windows searches for keyboard shortcuts only in start menu/programs. I use ctrl-alt-w for word, ctrl-alt-x for excel, ctrl-alt-c for calculaotr, etc. To keep track of created shortcuts I use "Hotkey detective", I had to fix source code to include internet shortcuts (URLs). And of course use ctrl-alt-H for "Hotkey detective"
