    I'm trying to set up a hot key combination for an application using Shift / Ctrl and another key but, apparantly, they are all taken! I thought you could use the same hot key combination for more than one application. Is there a way to find out what keys are used in what combination as hot keys across the entire system?

    I think it's under Keyboard in Control Panel, though I'm on a MAC right now so I can't confirm that. But surely not ALL keys are taken?

    Nope. Didn't there used to be something called Key Mapping, or something? Anyway, I thought the same thing, surely not ALL are taken! :rolleyes:

    There is a program called Character Map if that's what you talking about, but that only does characters and symbols...

    But there is one of the icons in Control Panel that can enable sticky keys, and I thought that's where you are looking for.

    I don't see anything in Control Panel which gives me access to keys, sticky or otherwise. Yeah, I was thinking of Character Map.
