Background: What Is a Shortcut?

In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a finite set of one or more keys that invoke a software or operating system operation when triggered by the user.

Keyboard shortcuts are typically an alternate means for invoking one or more commands that would otherwise be accessible only through a menu, a pointing device, different levels of a user interface, or via a command console. Keyboard shortcuts generally expedite common operations by reducing input sequences to a few keystrokes, hence the term "shortcut".

Shortcut keys help provide an easier and usually quicker method of navigating and using computer software programs. Shortcut keys are commonly accessed by using the Alt (on IBM compatible computers), command key (on Apple computers), Ctrl, and/or Shift in conjunction with a single letter.

How to Create a Windows Shortcut Key

CREATE A SHORTCUT

  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 or cut this shortcut and paste it anywhere to execute this program.

ASSIGN SHORTCUT KEY TO THAT WINDOWS SHORTCUT

Once the shortcut has been created to assign a shortcut key to that Windows shortcut follow the below steps.

  1. Right-click the shortcut and click Properties.
  2. Click the Shortcut tab.
  3. Click in the Shortcut key box and press a letter. For example, if you press "p" the shortcut key will automatically be made Ctrl + Alt + P. Which means if saved when pressing Ctrl and Alt and "P" all at the same time will run that shortcut.

Vinay Kumar Datrak 7 years ago

When a favorite has been given a shortcut for example i have given G so it becomes ctrl + alt + G ....

If there are more than one explorer window is open ...

When pressing ctrl + alt + G the page doesn't open in the active window if it other than 1st ...... it opens in the first window which is available

I want to open through short cut in the active window only how can it be possible
