    Any Windows Guru -- A question for you


    Hi there

    Can you make a short cut key to access a TOOLBAR ( NOTE PLEASE NOT ITEMS ON THE TASK/ QUICK LAUNCH BAR ).

    I've tried messing around with keystroke capture stuff but I haven't been able to crack this one.

    What I want to do is by using a short cut key is to bring up my Programs custom toolbar instead of having to move the mouse to the bottom toolbar and then click the arrows on the program toolbar.

    To avoid misunderstanding again -- I want the keystrokes to activate a CUSTOM TOOLBAR -- NOT repeat NOT ITEMS ON THE BOTTOM QUICK LAUNCH BAR.

    Cheers

    Hello,

    Where would the toolbar be ?
    In a browser like IE or Chrome ?
    Or in something like File Explorer ?
