There are two ways to quicken the launch process. You can program the function keys

(the F keys at the top of your keyboard). You can also program a combination of

CTRL + ALT + "Shortcut Key" to launch applications for you.

 

  To do this, follow these directions.

 

1.Find the icon of the program you'd like to create a shortcut key for and right-click on the icon.

 

2.Choose Properties from the menu and make sure you're in the Shortcut tab.

 

3.Place your cursor in the Shortcut key field, pick a Function Key or a letter you would like to assign a shortcut with, and press it.

 

4.Hit apply in the bottom-right corner.

 

5.To open the program, press CTRL + ALT + "Shortcut Key" or the Function Key you assigned to it.
