Before I sent my mesage, I tried that in order to see if that works,and it does not. I cannot go into the properties sheet for anything I find in the Start menu. What am I doing wrong then?

Not true at all. One can simply create a shortcut within the start menu shortcut by going into the properties and doing the very same thing as I stated before and the Apply button never needs to be used, hitting enter simply applies and Okays it.

Almost. First, this can only be done for Desktop icons. If you want a
shortcut key for something that is not already on the Desktop, you have
to create a Desktop icon for it, which is beyond the scope of this
discussion. Second, while in the icon's Properties dialog, the shortcut
key to go directly to the actual shortcut key field is Alt plus K.
Third, it's a two-step OK process--after typing your desired shortcut
key for the program in question, tab away from the shortcut key field
and press Alt plus A to activate the Apply button, then press ENTER to
activate the OK button, which closes the dialog.

Highlite the icon and go to the properties by using the keystroke
Then tab through until it asks you which keystroke it is that you would like
Which you would then use whatever keystroke it is that you would like to
Then hit enter to OK it.

The subject line is the question here, how do you create a
short cut key? Thanks.
