How to Create a Windows Shortcut Key

  1. Open the folder or directory that contains the program you wish to create a shortcut for.
  2. Right-click on the program and click Create Shortcut.
  3. This will create a shortcut named “Shortcut to <your program>” in the directory you are in. If you wish to rename this shortcut, right-click the file and click Rename.
  4. Once the above steps have been completed, you can copy this shortcut and paste it anywhere to execute this program.

Once the shortcut has been created, you can assign a keystroke to that Windows shortcut.

  1. Right-click the shortcut and click Properties.
  2. Click the Shortcut
  3. Click in the Shortcut key box and press a letter. For example, if you press “p”, the shortcut key will automatically be made to Ctrl + Alt + P. Which means that if saved, pressing Ctrl and Alt and P will run that shortcut.
