Creating a short cut to open a program not on your desktop

David Moore

Hi all.
I want to tell all of you the procedure to set a short cut to open a program that is not on the desktop or pinned to the start area. You can create a short cut to any program on your computer. Here is what you do.
First, press the Windows key to open the start area. up arrow once and press enter on all apps. Arrow to the program that you want to set the short cut for. If it says collapsed, press enter to open it. Now, arrow down to the program and press the applications key. Next, arrow down to open file location and press enter. Press the applications key. Now, up arrow once and enter on properties. Next, tab to the shortcut field and put in a letter. The alt and ctrl are automatically added to the short cut. Just tab to okay and press enter. Now, you can open that program with alt + ctrl + the letter without that program pinned anywhere. If the program is just on your computer, this way to create a short cut will work. Take care and I hope you enjoy this.
