On the tab Shortcut, in the field Shortcut key, enter the key of your choice to automatically create the key combination (CTRL+ALT+your letter). In our example, we preferred to use the numbers on the numeric keypad for more simplicity (one key to type).

    Good morning,
    It’s bluffing! Really amazing! I still don't believe this facility.
    I work a lot with keyboard shortcuts but this will be even more because I'm going to make them, now, in my own way.
    Thank you again for your work to help us.

    Good morning,
    first of all, thank you for all these tutorials, very well explained, that even I can understand.
    I was very happy, but there was a little problem.
    When I wanted to work on Libre Office calc, the 1 of the numeric keypad chosen to open the program was no longer working.
    I had changed my keyboard: same problem. By going back and removing the 1 from the program launch, the 1 of the numeric keypad has returned to normal operation.
    If, for example, I had installed 9 programs to launch in this way, the entire keypad would have been inoperative.
    Small participation to prevent others from catching sweats and stress like me.
