On all my Windows PCs I do a 'Shortcut key' for calculator to open with Ctrl+Shift+C:
I can't figure out how to do it on Windows 10. There are no right-click properties.
shell:AppsFolder, right-click Calculator, Create shorcut, Yes
calc.exe, Create Shortcut, Yes. Then step 2 above
If I placed the shortcut in %WinDir%\System or Documents it seemingly wouldn't work!? It was flakey even moving back to Desktop, but after I set the shortcut to something else, hit Apply, then back to Ctrl+Shift+C it'd work :P
Using AutoHotkey script allows to use "Win" key for shortcut, e.g for Win+C:
With Windows 10 you can just simply pull the calculator icon from the Windows menu to your desktop, right click it and then select properties. The window that opens should allow you to add a hotkey.
