Windows 7: who knows where the info on user-defined shortcuts is kept?

who knows where the info on user-defined shortcuts is kept?

i'm trying to get rid of a shortcut that's preventing me to assign a new one. have searched the HD for .lnk -files, and there's none that would have that key combo.

odd.

would there be a way of getting a compiled view of all the shortcuts that are assigned?

i'm on 7-64, but was sometimes wondering about this for the past several years on other flavors as well.

cheers.

Shortcut Key Explorer is a nice small piece of software that does exactly that. It scans your computer for global, non-standard keyboard shortcuts. Free download: RJL Software - Software - Utility - Shortcut Key Explorer - Download
