I'd like to change the key combination alt-shift-s to be ctrl-s for saving a page that is currently being edited.

Note that Alt+Shift+S is the browser's default implementation for the accesskey attribute on elements. Also Alt+Shift is what Firefox makes of it, IE uses just Alt. So generally, you'll need to do that by other means than it is done now. – Joey Mar 16 '10 at 18:22
Google Docs lets me use Ctrl-S -- That's what I'm after. Any tips? Thanks for your time – Brian Webster Mar 17 '10 at 6:16

If you have knowledge on JavaScript, you could look into something like or as a starting point. (If you'd like you could do a Google search for javascript detect ctrl-s)

From there you could do something like simulate a click event on the save button.
