As mentioned in the list of the keyboard shortcuts in the Outlook Help page: Ctrl+v then Ctrl+SPACE seems a reasonable solution that gives a way to apply the current format of the mail you're writing to the text you paste. An alternative is Ctrl+v then Ctrl+Shift+z which removes any format.

I was having the same problem in the German version of Word 2013. I finally found the currently assigned shortcuts - Alt+1 instead of Alt+Ctrl+1 for Heading 1 etc. I managed to assign a different keyboard shortcut in the File → Options → Ribbon → Keyboard shortcuts. Listing all commands, I found the headings 1, 2 and 3 (no option for 4, 5 or ...

I'm assuming you aren't speaking of the CAPSLOCK key. That would be too obvious. You wish to change current text to upper case that is already on the screen to uppercase correct? If so then in short... No. Control C, Control V, and Control X are universal partly because it is part of Windows. It sounds like you don't want a software solution so that ...

I had a similar problem. I have a very big spreadsheet with thousands of formulas, some with column absolute, and some with both column and row absolute. I wanted to make a side-by-side duplicate on the same worksheet, instead of making a duplicate on a new spreadsheet. I needed to copy all of the formulas and have Excel treat absolute references as relative ...

Try Toastify. From the website: "Toastify adds some missing functionallity to the Spotify client(Windows only). It shows a popup, toast style, dialog on track change and it allows you to use global hot keys for Play/Pause, Next, Previous etc." I've used it before to add hotkeys in Windows 7 and 8, works pretty well.

This feature has already been requested, and Spotify developers have manifested their lack of interest in adding it in the near future: Hey everyone, Spotify Staff here.

As far as I know the fn key on laptops is not reported as a keystroke - rather the keyboard has specific keys which you can use with the fn key to produce a different keycode. I discovered this by checking what was reported when the key was pressed, which was nothing, as opposed to other modifier keys like Alt or Shift which have a scancode of their own. In ...

I had some similar issues when installing Office 2016, but what worked for me was activating Office in another Office app (e.g. PowerPoint, Excel). Oddly the activation stayed active this way, whereas in Word it would revert back to being unactivated. If that doesn't work, the recommended procedure is to completely uninstall Office and try again.

The Ctrl+R functionality to search backwards through shell history is provided by the Readline library used by Bash. The corresponding function to search forwards through the history is, by default, bound to Ctrl+S. However, the problem is that the terminal driver already uses this key combination for flow control: pressing Ctrl+S stops or pauses text ...

Since the question asks "what are you actually doing", I'm answering this with my less than satisfactory current workflow: To this day I arrange the desired target windows such, that they are peeking out from below everything else - typically towards the left / right / top / bottom edges of my screen, and then mouse click on the desired window.

There appears to be a race condition with the interaction between the MATE shortcut system and mate-screenshot. You can work-around the bug by creating a wrapper /usr/local/bin/mate-screenshot-wrapper similar to this: #!/bin/sh sleep 1 exec /usr/bin/mate-screenshot $@ Then assign your custom shortcut to /usr/local/bin/mate-screenshot-wrapper -a. On my ...

I've been curious about this as well and this is a really temporary solution that I'm not happy with--but it's something. By simply minimizing your main terminal window (instead of leaving an active iTerm window in whatever desktop space it's in--which I'd much rather do) your hotkey window will drop down the visor in your current window without conflicting ...

Keybinder Addon worked best first for me. More easily than the currently most popular answer. It trivially mapped ctrl-arrowleft and ctrl-arrowright to switch between tabs left and right (on linux with firefox 45.01). It seems good to do any keystroke I want. I will note that, under gnome-linux, the alt key is bound to the desktop (for popping up the ...

Alt+F4 will work. You have to disable "Close Spotify to tray" option in preferences. Then when you do your alt+f4, it will really quit the app. I don't know if this option exists before.

I'm using the Desktops v2.0 from SysInternals and I have 4 desktops under a single key: F1,F2,F3,F4 (is anyone using F1 for invoking the help, really?).

There are only a few possible locations for that shortcut: the desktop (%USERPROFILE%\Desktop, %PUBLIC%\Desktop) the start menu (%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu, %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu) the quick launch bar (all user and system wide, of course) Hotkeys will work only from these locations, so it shouldn't be too onerous to ...

Change your shortcut to start myscript.cmd From the Microsoft Documentation: The start command will start a separate Command Prompt window to run a specified program or command. If your command name contains space(s) (e.g., C:\Program Files\mystuff\myscript.cmd), you need to put it into quotes, of course.  Because of a quirk in the user interface ...

I suspect this is a case of PEBKAC ;) Ctrl+Shift+↑/↓ is supposed to move lines in Notepad++. Shift+↑/↓ will select text. In general, unless specific application overloads this behavior: Shift enables text selection as cursor moves (either with arrows or Home/End/Page Up/Page Down keys) Ctrl+←/→ makes cursor move by words ...

Let's start with the second part of your question, since it gives you an understanding of what we're going to do.

Install the keybinding-resolver and open it ...

You're stuck between a rock & a hard place.

You might be able to make this work using "Mouse Keys" in the Accessibility preference pane in System Preferences. Works best with (might even require) a keyboard with a number pad. I am not sure that it will work for you but it is designed to allow someone to move the cursor and to click without using the mouse or trackpad but rather by the keys on the ...
