How do you make a keyboard shortcut?

You can make a keyboard shortcut for starting a program by right clicking the shortcut to a program (such as the Start Menu ones) and clicking properties. In the "Shortcut Key" text box, type the letter or number you want to make into a shortcut. After you apply the settings all you have to do to start the program is to press the letter while holding down the Ctrl and Alt keys. If you make the shortcut key one that is on the number pad, you will just have to press that key to start the program. You won't have to hold down any other key. I don't think you can make any other kind of keyboard shortcut.
