Assigning a keyboard shortcut as a custom context menu RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    lots of stuff around on creating keyboard shortcuts for context menus, but I want to do it in reverse. I have an app that at present I press CTRL+D to dial a highlighted number on a web page or spreadsheet etc. (basically if I can select or highlight a number in any app on windows it works, it is not app dependent, so is a general windows question). As I'm using a mouse to select the number to dial I wanted to be able to right click and have an item I can select to perform this function. Any ideas?

    Please bear in mind I am not a programmer or any sort of advanced IT specialist. I can follow basic instruction and put together information from various sources, but my understanding of what I'm actually doing will be very limited, so please be gentle with me!

  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting here.

    According to your description, the issue seems to be a general windows question. the question hasn't belonged the scope of the current forum.

    If you want windows to add some features, you can write your feedback and idea on user voice or on windows 10 feedback.   

    I will move the case to off-topic.

    Best Regards,
