Shortcuts is one of the most familiar concepts for the Windows users and no doubt it should be because of the convenience it provides to execute any program without navigating to it’s folder and locating the executable of the program. Windows also has a built-in feature to assign hotkeys to the shortcuts to quickly launch an application without locating the shortcut on the desktop (mostly). Not all people are so accustomed to shortcuts keys to launch applications but still a lot of people do use them on a daily basis.

But the problem is that if you have assigned shortcuts keys to a lot of shortcuts then you may find it difficult to memorize all of them at least in the beginning. And secondly don’t you think that it will be better to manage all the Windows shortcut keys from a single interface rather than to right-click on each shortcut and clicking in the Properties to launch the interface to manage it. But unfortunately Microsoft has not provided such a feature in Windows.

Well, Shortcut Key Explorer is a nice utility that is developed exactly to solve the above mentioned two issues. It lists all the shortcut keys that are assigned to all the shortcuts listed in a single interface and you can also modify the key assigned to a shortcut by double-clicking an item or selecting Edit Shortcut from the context-menu. It may come handy for computer users that rely heavily on hotkeys to launch windows shortcuts. Of course if you are using a third-party hokey manger/utility then you may not need it.

    Looks like a useful softy, but even then remembering shortcuts is problem right?

  • Jawwad

    Yeah! and it will remain so if there are a lot of shortcuts confiured. But at least we have a single view to list ALL the windows shortcuts and assigned hot keys :smile:

  • Nirmal

    That way this is good to see all shortcuts in a single window.

    Thank you Nirmal! I was always wondering what shortcut keys were added to my machine by default. Now I can see all of them and edit/delete them too! Thanks for this little find.
