Reference this post for more information Windows 7 - Custom keyboard shortcut key not working properly [SOLVED] - [H]ard|Forum
Enabling this setting cleared the problems while all other suggested remedies did not.
The solution provided by this link is great, but it appears to not fix the issue entirely. Specifically, when you remote desktop into a Windows 7 computer that has custom keyboard shortcuts assigned, once you have rdp'd into that computer, it loses all of the custom keyboard shortcuts until you logout, and then log back into the computer non-remotely (ie. at the machine itself).
I second the motion that Microsoft should fix the way custom keyboard shortcuts persist on all Windows 7 OS's.
