This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I don't know where you got that registry setting from, but it is complete nonsense. It looks like somebody took IME settings and copied them to the ShellNew key. – Raymond Chen Nov 9 '11 at 17:23
i know that the shortcut keys(ctrl + shift + N ) is to new folder,but why i can't use the other shortcut keys to new Text documents(or other file),this is the question! – caizZZz Nov 17 '11 at 4:22
That shortcut is hard-coded into the system. This is not a programming question. – Raymond Chen Nov 17 '11 at 15:00
