Hello Sympatico,

You should be able to just left click on it to select the Shortcut key box, then type in a key or function key that you want to use as the shortcut. If that key or function key is being used by something else, then it will not let you use it again though.

Is that shortcut to a specific note?

This is what I get for sticky notes shortcut properties,

Humphhh
I navigated to the Vista forum to follow that thread and could not post there...
Must register for each OS ???
Well I do not use Vista... ohhh no !

Here's my problem: in XP I always used the keyboard shortcut "Cntl + Alt + P" to open photoshop.
I'm trying to set it in Windows 7 but the shortcut does not stick !
Each time I reboot... pffttt it's gone !
Is there a secret ? What am I doing wrong ??
