Create keyboard shortcuts to open programs

Thanks for your reply, but unlikely I couldn't remap into single keystroke. My purpose is to open the program instead of pressing ctl+alt+A at once, I just open by pressing one single keystroke for instance A keystroke... Anyone can give me a guide?

Thanks

You need to create a macro to do this. Some keyboards (like mine) have a built in (well, drivers) macro feature (with buttons). Mine has never worked, but I don't use it.

AutoHotkey - Free Mouse and Keyboard Macro Program with Hotkeys and AutoText
Let me google that for you

Thank 4 ur reply.. appreciate for the utility...Actually I got some unused key..then I want to assign those key with specific task like open the program...Unfortunately, this thing can be done by pressing modifier key + virtual key. I triedt using the scancode method inside registry, but somehow it just have one to one keystroke swapping support instead of multiple to one keystroke. Anything I have missed looking.

Thanks.
