    Assign Keyboard Shortcut to Shortcuts in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    Information In Windows 10, you can assign a keyboard shortcut (aka: shortcut key) to a shortcut on your desktop, taskbar, and Start menu. When you use the assigned shortcut key, it will open the shortcut.

    This tutorial will show you how to assign a keyboard shortcut to open a shortcut on your desktop, taskbar, or Start menu in Windows 10.

    Note If you assign the same shortcut key to a shortcut (B) that was already assigned to another shortcut (A), the shortcut key will no longer work for the other shortcut (A) and will now only work for the current shortcut (B).

    If you move a shortcut that you assigned a shortcut key to another location, the shortcut key will no longer work to open the shortcut.

    Windows 10 commands/shortcuts/env. var.

    Keyboard shortcuts to open programs:

    Create a shortcut on the desktop to whatever program you want. Right click -> Properties and fill in the field there. Sadly the shortcut needs to remain on the desktop, but you can hide it.

    Fun fact: If you had keyboard shortcuts for programs pinned to your Windows 7 start menu, those shortcuts still work when you update to Windows 10.
