Windows 7: Place to see all of our own app keyboard shortcuts

Place to see all of our own app keyboard shortcuts

Ok i think this is the place to post this.. When you right clic an app shortcut (or even a file, anything..) you can assign it a keyboard shortcut, for example i used maj+alt+s for launching steam. Now after you made a lot you might not remember them all after some time and it'll be nice if there's a place to see a list of them (in registry or elsewhere) instead having to check all your shortcuts..! I guess there is, but where? Thanks for the help!

I'm not sure that such a place exists. The easiest thing to do would be to create a simple text file listing all of your shortcuts and the applications that they invoke. Save this file (in case you add/delete shortcuts in the future) and print the current version. You now have something to refer to.

Thanks that's a good advice... If someone pass by and knows more about it, let us know, it surely exist in the registry!

Some things (apps..) won't launch even though i push the key that were assigned to them...

What could be the reason? Still looking for the registry folder where i can see all created shortcuts...

The list you are looking for in the registry could be scattered all through the registry. It could take for ever to compile such a registry list. Windows 7 registry is not One Stop Shopping. I like Dwarf method. Very simple and easy to do. You could also put this list in a folder on taskbar for easy access. Now you have a printed list and a list in a folder.
Happy computing.

Hello Goja,

The shortcut must be located in either the Start Menu All Programs area, on the desktop, pinned to the taskbar (Windows 7 only), or pinned to the Start Menu for the keyboard shortcut you assign to it will work.

Keyboard Shortcut

Hope this helps,
