You mean the ones defined by Microsoft?

Some can NOT be changed as they are built in and some third party programs expect them to be there for their use.

What do you want to change to what and why?

I do NOT think that one can be changed.

This shows how to create a Windows shortcut, but the shortcut key would also have Alt, it could be Ctrl + Alt + F.


Or you could get AutoHotkey and use the following code:

^F::
Run %ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox\Firefox.exe
Return

That would start Firefox when you pressed Ctrl + F.
