  1. Locate the application’s shortcut icon. If it isn’t already on your desktop / taskbar, use Explorer’s search feature to query for it.
  2. Right click the shortcut and select properties.
  3. Enter a key combo in the Shortcut key field. The combo must be CTRL + ALT + a third key such as a letter or number.
  4. Click OK.
