Is it possible to register shortcuts on Windows 7 so that regardless where you are looking (Desktop, a folder etc) the shortcut gets "heard" and the appropriate action is performed.
For example, creating a shortcut in the System32 folder which will work if you use Run with the shortcut's name, will not work if you set a key combination when focus is set on the Desktop for example.
Is there a native way of registering top-level shortcuts or even an application for enabling this?
Example of things I want keyboard shortcuts for:
- open a specific folder like %path%
- create a new .js file in the current folder
- launch an application eventually with its path set to the current location if the app supports this (e.g. command prompt)
