We received a great deal of positive feedback regarding the “Keyboard Shortcuts” QuickTip we’ve sent out recently. However, did you know that you aren’t limited to just the shortcuts that come pre-configured in Windows? Read on and learn how to create your own custom keyboard shortcuts for any program you choose! In this example, we’ll create a key combination for iTunes.

    1. Right-click on the iTunes program icon to reveal the context menu.

    1. Select “Properties” (NOT “Create shortcut”), and you’ll see a box that looks like this:

    1. Click on the text box to the right of “Shortcut key:” and press the key combination you wish to assign to iTunes. In this instance, we’ve chosen “Shift + Alt + I.”
    2. (If you wish, you can use the dropdown menu next to “Run:” to tell Windows to run the program in a Normal window, Maximized, or Minimized.)

  1. Click “OK” and test your new keyboard shortcut.

That’s it! Next time you want to open iTunes, all you have to do is press “Shift + Alt + I.”
