As you know, launching a program each time using the shortcuts on your Desktop or using the Start menu takes a long time.

In this tutorial, you will see how to create keyboard shortcuts to launch your programs in record time!

This little tutorial can also help you open folders using three keys…

Let’s go!

Custom Keyboard Shortcuts to Launch Your Programs in Windows

Create a new shortcut anywhere, we will copy that shortcut later to this folder (very important).

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Click “Browse” to select the program you want to create the shortcut for.

Here I have chosen CCleaner. Click “OK“.

Choose a name for your Shortcut. Click “Finish“.

Right-click on your shortcut and choose “Properties“.

In the Shortcut tab, select the field Shortcut key and enter a key combination for your shortcut. Then click “OK“.

Finally copy the shortcut to this path:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

The shortcut keys will not work unless you copy your shortcut in that folder.
