In windows 7, when you right click a file and press r it open's the file's properties window.
With my new windows 8 (en-GB) install, the keyboard accelerator has changed to o. This is inconvenient for me, as almost every file ever is going to have "Open" listed as the first thing in the context menu with, you guessed it, o as the accelerator. So now neither of these options can be selected with one key press.
Is there any way to change the properties accelerator back to r?
I've included some screenshots from 2 different computers (the first one installed only 3 days ago and not touched since). The only difference i can think is that on the very first screen in the Win 8 installer, I chose (actually, it might have been the only option) british english as the "display language" since I am in australia.
In the screenshots, the keyboard accelerators show as the underlined letters in the menu. Pressing the underlined letter will activate that menu choice - unless there are 2 with the same accelerator (in which case it only highlights them and a further key press alternates between them). To show the underlines, go to Control Panel -> Ease of Access -> Change how your keyboard works -> Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys.
