  1. Windows Process for Custom CTRL+ALT keyboard shortcut keys


    What windows process executes the custom keyboard shortcuts that a user can define to open files or programs?



    For example I may have a file on my desktop where I defined CTRL+ALT+E to open a favorite excel file. So whenever I hit this key combo, the excel file opens.


    I depend on this functionality but there are some times that it doesn't work and want to know what windows process is responsible for executing the command in order to troubleshoot. In particular these shortcut keys don't typically work during a MS Teams call.

    :)

    How to disable the Ctrl+Alt+L keyboard shortcut?

    The CTRL+ALT+key combination is generally a user-defined hotkey (although it's also used in Windows Magnifier and Remote Desktop Connection -- see

    http://www.shortcutmania.com/Windows-7-Keyboard-Shortcuts-printable-cheatsheet.htm
    ).

    Your screenshot looks more like something from Windows XP than Windows 7. User profiles in Windows 7 are located at C:\Users\username (for Windows XP, it's C:\Documents and Settings\username). In any event, I don't think it's a Windows
    7 system function.

    Close all open processes.

    Start Task Manager and click the button to show processes from all users.

    Select the Applications tab (the Processes tab will probably have too many items to see the change)

    Press the key combination (CTRL+ALT+L)

    What application started?

    If that doesn't work neither does looking at the Processes tab, perhaps some of the suggestions here will help:

    Windows Process for Custom CTRL+ALT keyboard shortcut keys

    List custom keyboard shortcuts

    Hi,

    I would like to create a shortcut to Windows Update using CTRL-ALT-U, but when I try to put that in the shortcut key area of the shortcut, it blanks out again. This means I have used that key combo elsewhere, but typing it doesn't do anything. I upgraded
    from Win7 to Win10 and I think I set it for Windows 7 Update.

    My questions are,

    1. How do I reassign this shortcut?
    2. How do I get a list of custom shortcuts that are already set?

    Thanks!
