To create a keyboard shortcut for opening a folder

Postby ModeratorNA » Tue May 31, 2016 2:57 pm

1. Click on Start, All Programs, Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.
2. In Windows Explorer (the program that appears when you open folders such as My Computer, My Documents, My Pictures, or My Music), right-click the folder to which you want instant access, click Send To, and then click Desktop.
3. On your desktop, right-click the new shortcut, and then click Properties.
4. On the Shortcut tab, click in the Shortcut key box. Now press the letter on your keyboard that you want to use to open the folder.
5. Click OK.

Now test your shortcut. Hold down the CTRL and ALT keys, and then press the letter you chose.
This tip can be applied to folders, programs, and text file shortcuts that are placed on the desktop.
