For me, this issue is specific to opening files through the context menu with gVIm, but it probably applies to more general situations too.
In particular, I want to get gVim to open a file with a single key press from the Windows 7 context menu.
In Windows XP, I could just right click, and type v, and my file (of any extension) would open for editing in gVim. In Windows 7, there seems to be another item using the v shortcut ("Restore previous versions"), so now when I type v the "Edit with Vim" option is highlighted but doesn't instantly run (hitting v subsequently toggles between the 2 items).
There seems to be no context item using the shortcut g, so perhaps I can change it to that. However, I can't find how to do that. Can anyone explain?
Other questions on SU (such as this, and this) focus on how to add extra items to the context menu, but don't seem to cover how to specify a particular shortcut key. They are very close to what I'm trying to do, but not the same, so this is not a duplicate question of those.
