    Hi.

    I noticed in Windows 7's taskbar, I could use winkey+1, winkey+2, etc.
    to launch the assigned programs. Is there a way to change these hotkeys
    to something else or is that hard coded?

    Thank you in advance. :)

    That appears to be a #1-#10 (10 being 0) taskbar fixed method.

    You can use the win-1, win-2 etc., to switch around opened apps, if
    they're already open. Shift-Win-1, etc., to launch a new instance of that
    app. Win-T to the taskbar to get to item 1. Win-T to repeatedly advance
    to others. CTL-shift-Win-1 to run as administrator, etc., etc.

    You can drag/reorder the items to change their launch #.

    Maybe among single users but, for enterprise workgroups, consistency is a
    good thing.

    Not to mention, there are only so many key combinations to go around. I
    figure MS thought best to not go too far.
