What hotkeys or shortcuts are set by default when QAP is installed and how can I change them?
|This page has been updated for Quick Access Popup v10.|
During installation, shortcuts are created for two types of hotkeys: popup menu hotkeys and favorite hotkeys.
Popup menu hotkeys
By default, the QAP popup menu can be triggered by the Middle Mouse Button and the keyboard shortcut Windows + W. A second popup menu called Alternative menu is triggered by default by Shift + Middle Mouse Button or Shift + Windows + W. You can change these settings in Options dialog box, Popup Hotkeys tab.
Mouse or keyboard hotkeys can also be assigned to any favorite in your menu. This allow you to launch a favorite without having to open the QAP popup menu and locate your favorite.
At installation time, only some QAP feature favorites are assigned to shortcuts. They are in the In the works or the My QAP Essentials menus. These menus are created at installation in the Main popup menu. It includes keyboard shortcuts for the following menu and QAP features:
- Shift-Control-W for In the work menu
- Shift-Control-U for Reopen Current Folder in Dialog Box
- Shift-Control-F for Reopen a Folder
- Shift-Control-V for the Clipboard menu
Two other QAP features and one web favorite are also inserted in the Main menu during installation:
- Shift-Control-C for Customize
- Shift-Control-A for Add Active Folder or Web page
- Shift-Control-Q for Quick Access Popup web site.
You can change all these shortcuts by editing each favorite separately or you can edit all of them in the Hotkeys dialog box: select Tools, Hotkeys in the Customize window menu bar. See also Can I launch my favorites with keyboard or mouse shortcuts?
