I wanted to assign a key command to a macro and chose Ctrl+Shift+0. However, the dialogue box didn’t recognize the key combo. Alt+Shift+0, Ctrl+0, Ctrl+Shift+9, etc. and other combinations seem to be recognized. Just not Ctrl+Shift+0.
Can anyone confirm or provide a reason? Thanks!
EDIT: I did try combinations of the left and right side Ctrl and Shift keys too. No change.
Actually, those four keys, held down with none other, launches MS Office, and if that is not installed, opens their website. Yes, very annoying for anyone who does lots of keystroke customization. Then, append various keys to launch the individual programs…
I took me a while to find a fix, and in the meantime I did workarounds to hide the effect, including an ahk timer that closes the window that opens within 100 milliseconds, and, I actually made a hosts entry to redirect the url to localhost.
The fix was to run this command (as admin) from a .reg file or cmd prompt. REG ADD HKCU\Software\Classes\ms-officeapp\Shell\Open\Command /t REG_SZ /d rundll32
If only they would ask first. My biggest gripe with Windows key management is NumLock not allowing shift to work. It stills gives me pause why recall marker X doesn’t work. (Shift+NumPad 1-9) And then after a few seconds I remember: "aaah, it’s because Num Lock is on.)
