Shortkey for Ctrl+D Menu

Post by *msrox » 2014-05-25, 20:56 UTC

Is there any way to make shortky for Ctrl+D menu?
For example lets say I have these in the list of my Ctrl+D:

Directory
Folder
Drive

When I press Ctrl+D and the menu is oprn, I'd like to jump to Directory by pressing d, jump to Folder by pressing f, and jump to drive by pressing r. Is it possible?

Just put a "&" in front of the character you prefer as shortcut:

&Directory
&Folder
D&rive

Great Thank you.

What if the key is not in the title? For example I want to press 1 after Ctrl+D to open Desktop!

msrox,
Just add this character to item title. :wink:
Examples:

Code: Select all

Desktop (&1)
&1 Desktop
Desktop<tab>&1
Last one is my favorite, but it requires tab character to be pasted from clipboard (it may be copied e.g. from notepad). In such case all shortcut characters are displayed in right menu column.
