ScanSnap - Changing global shortcut key

ScanSnap - Changing global shortcut key
Views: 76
My office mates and I each run Windows 7, and are using Fujitsu's ScanSnap desktop scanners. We have recently discovered that the ScanSnap software has appropriated the use of the Ctrl-Shift-Space key combination.

Using that combination brings up the ScanSnap software. The trouble is that the same key combination is used to insert a non-breaking space character in Microsoft Word. That's something that we all use a lot in Word.

Since we've all used Word for years and are familiar with its default key combinations, we'd like to change the ScanSnap hotkeys, rather than changing the Word shortcut key. Right-clickingon the ScanSnap files in the Windows Start menu does not reveal any assigned shortcut keys.

My first inclination was just to scrap the ScanSnap software and use a TWAIN driver for all the scanning. Sadly, Fujitsu has decided that it will never issue a TWAIN driver for the ScanSnap. They want you to use their software.

Shortcut to get to the Properties Dialog Box of a specific file?

Shortcut to get to the Properties Dialog Box of a specific file? Icon
Does somebody know if there is a Shortcut Key to get to the Properties dialog box of a particular file?mp3 that I received from somebody so when I place them in my itunes account I can select the group instead of going through the whole itunes list to find them.

The problem is that these files start with 001, 002, etc.

and I have other files that also start with 001, 002, etc. but they have the album name in the Properties already so they are easy to find.

but I am trying to not have to Right-click to get to the Properties dialog box, after I get to the Properties dialog box is easy to Tab to go to the different fields, but I am trying not to have to take my hands off the keyboard.

I have been unable to find a shortcut key on the list of shortcut keys on the Microsoft list of available shortcut keys. Maybe I missed it.

One of my applications uses CTRL+ALT+Down as a standard shortcut (which I frequently used on my old Vista system). Now in Windows 7 this shortcut is assigned to "Move window down" (ie.

How to create an Excel shortcut on taskbar w/o Excel new page opening up

How to create an Excel shortcut on taskbar w/o Excel new page opening up Icon

I have an Excel page that I refer to daily and made a shortcut for it and put it on the taskbar. In windows vista the shortcut just opened when I clicked it, now with windows 7 when I click it a new Excel sheet opens.

I can right click the shortcut which gives me the option of a new page or my saved page, but this is an extra step.

So, how do I get it to open after clicking the shortcut?

 

Multiple icon change in .lnk Shortcut

Multiple icon change in .lnk Shortcut Icon

I have a folder with pictures. I moved some of them to a different folder and replaced them with a shortcut to the new location. The newly created shortcut works perfectly but its icon is the icon of the refered picture with the small "shortcut arrow" overimposed.

This is not ok for my scope and I want to replace this icon with a generic fixed one I.e. "stop signal". This can be easily done with a right click on the Shortcut, then Properties, Change Icon, etc.

Unfortunately this needs to be repeated for each and every Shortcut I have to change, because if I do a multiple selection before the right click the Change Icon dialog is not available.

Is there a way, a command, a program, whatever, that I can use to do the icon change in many Shortcuts at once?

 

Problems creating shortcuts on desktop

Problems creating shortcuts on desktop Icon

Whenever I right click the desktop and go to New > Shortcut, the icon it creates has the "hidden" attribute. If its a shortcut to an app it will work, although hidden since I have hidden files shown. But if its a shortcut to a url it gives me an error: "unable to create shortcut".

I think its related to the fact that its hidden because when I hit cancel, another dialog comes up and says the shortcut could no longer be found, please verify the file's location.

When I hit cancel on that I'm back at the desktop and the shortcut is there, hidden, and does not work.

I have tried on three PCs. 2 have the problem, one doesn't. Two run IE 8 one runs IE 9 and firefox.

Powershell Run as Administrator

Powershell Run as Administrator Icon
I have a shortcut that points to a Powershell script. When I double click this shortcut it opens Powershell's console in the same directory that the shortcut file is placed.
I need to do the same but running the same shortcut with administrative priviledges, so I use Run as Administrator. The problem is that the current/working directory is %systemroot%\system32 and not the directory where the shotcut is placed.
How can I setup things to get the same results as with the less privileged (normal) user account?
