    How can I change the default a keyboard shortcut
    The key combo I used in XP was win+alt+2
    But...this combo in Win7 is used to "Open the Jump List for the program pinned to the taskbar in the position indicated by the number"

    Is there any way of changing this default key combo to do nothing so my HotKeys program can take over and do what I had it set to do in XP?

    I have HotKeys set to play a set of keystrokes

    As I stated in my question...I have my HotKeys program set to play a key stroke.
    I press Alt+Win+2 and it's like typing my password without typing it. Or type out a web site, or email address...or any other keystrokes I choose

    Hmmm, so a Macro set to that key combo...

    I will have to play around with it later but it should be possible.
