    How to Change Keyboard Shortcuts for Narrator Commands in Windows 10


    Narrator is a screen-reading app built into Windows 10.

    Narrator lets you use your PC without a display or mouse to complete common tasks if youre blind or have low vision. It reads and interacts with things on the screen, like text and buttons. Use Narrator to read and write email, browse the internet, and work with documents.

    Specific commands let you navigate Windows, the web, and apps, as well as get info about the area of the PC you're in. Navigation is available using headings, links, landmarks, and more. You can read text (including punctuation) by page, paragraph, line, word, and character as well as determine characteristics like font and text color. Efficiently review tables with row and column navigation.

    If you like, you can change the keyboard shortcut used for Narrator commands to customize them how you want.

    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.

    Windows 10 commands/shortcuts/env. var.

    Humongous update. Added lots of commands (Control and System Properties) to the OP (in green and blue).
    Double/triple checked them all in Anniversary and Creators Update, everything works.

    Windows 10 commands/shortcuts/env. var.

    Win+X (or right click on Windows icon) isn't really useful anymore. MS removed classic control panel from the list and changed programs and features to Apps and Features. To get to Programs and Features you have to go to Apps and Features first (Metro UI) (it's in the top right corner).

    And classic cmd also left the win+x and File list, you have to do it old way (win+r -> cmd -> enter).
