First the shortcut key steps then the differences between
hotkeys & shortcut keys:
1. Go to the Desktop by pressing Windows key + M.
2. Press the letter, G, until you land on the Google Chrome
3. Press, Alt + Enter, to bring up the Chrome Properties page.
4. Tab to the Shortcut key field, and type in the shortcut key
combination of your choice, like, Alt, Control + C, or whatever
other combination you prefer.
5. Tab to Apply button, hit Space, then tab around again to the
Okay button and hit Space. That's it. Now, when you press,
Alt, Control + C, or whatever
shortcut key you assigned, Chrome will be launched.

These keystrokes are typically used in menus and dialogues, and
Windows, or application specific.
Familiar hotkeys include Alt + F4, for closing a window in the
system, or closing an application.
Control + C for copying to the Windows clipboard etc, or in a
like Alt + N for the next button.

Subject: [TechTalk] question about keyboard
shortcuts or hot keys
A friend of mine gave me instructions a long time ago on how to
keyboard shortcut or a hot key. I'm not sure what the difference
My question is when I get google chrome downloaded and I want to
Control Alt C, instead of searching for it, I was wondering how to
that. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I forgot the
that my friend gave me. I'm not sure if that's on the desktop or
it actually goes when I do this. When I use Thunderbird, we have
up so all I have to do is hit Control Alt T if you get my drift.
in advance to anyone who responds.
