My first experience with a “IBM PC” clone was using Word Perfect to create something for school. For those of you who are not old enough to remember Word Perfect was similar to the UNIX editor vi in that you could do any and everything with a keyboard. In fact my dad had a keyboard overlay with all the shortcut’s on a quick reference guide it was fantastic.
Ever since I have been a keyboard freak and hate using the mouse unless I really have to.
So I use a Gaming keyboard nowadays and I have an old Logitech G15 keyboard which I love to bits. What I have done is created shortcuts to frequently used applications like mail or my workspace.
You can program the keys through the GUI to open a link……Here’s how to calculate the link
Drag “workspace” to your desktop and a shortcut is created
If you view the shortcut in notepad it looks like this
so I copy and paste the link into the interface for the button – et voila
