Just noting that some keyboards have a calculator button (usually above the numbers-pad). –  Ken Dec 28 '12 at 14:56

Find the shortcut to calculator in the Start menu, right click and select "Properties". You can enter any shortcut you want in the "Shortcut Key" field.

This is the solution. I like Ctrl-Alt-C, personally. –  Chris W. Rea Aug 21 '09 at 20:48

Well if you put it in your quicklaunch bar, the items there automatically get a shortcut (well the first 10 anyway) of Windows + #

Thanks, I know that, but I prefer to have a "clean" taskbar. –  miloshadzic Aug 21 '09 at 20:46

Not a true shortcut key combination, but a comfortable way to do it anyway. win-key+r [for the run window], type calc and press enter.

Might seems like a bit of work relatively for a shortcut, but if you're not completely rubbish at typing, it's easy and quick (and if you use the method for other programs you really get used to it).

I could do the same thing just pressing the Win key and typing calc. –  miloshadzic Aug 21 '09 at 20:49
    
Yes, but if you have other programs that contain with those letters and especially if you use them more, you might find yourself loading the wrong app. –  Eran Aug 21 '09 at 20:58

I know I sound like a fanboy, but I haven been using Microsoft keyboard for 9 years. I know it doesn't solve your problem in software, but all MS keyboard have a dedicate calculator button which I found very useful from time to time.
