Using shortcuts to run commands

You probably have two or three programs that you run daily, or even many times a day. And, most likely, you took the shortcuts of these programs to the most convenient place on the "Desktop" to run them as quickly as possible. You can further accelerate the launch of these programs if you specify hot keys to call them. To do this, right-click the shortcut of the desired program, select the "Properties" item and on the "Label" tab, place the mouse cursor in the "Quick Call" field. Then press the key combination to call this program (Ctrl + Alt + letter, Ctrl + Shift + letter, Alt + Shift + letter or Ctrl + Alt + Shift + letter). It's very simple to get used to this method of opening programs, even wondering how it used to go without it.

For many Windows commands, you can make shortcuts.

To do this it is very simple: in the context menu select New -> Shortcut and specify the required command line, for example:

  • rundll32 shell32, SHExitWindowsEx -1 Overload Explorer
  • rundll32 shell32, Control_RunDLL Open "Control Panel"
The list of commands is too extensive and depends on the system installed on your computer.
