To Create a Hotkey for a Multi-Monitor Management Function

  1. From the Hotkey Editor window, click New.

  2. For Step 1, from the pull-down menu, select A multi-monitor management function.

  3. In Step 2, select an option under Multi-Monitor Function:

    • Next Monitor - Moves to the next monitor

    • Previous Monitor - Moves to the previous monitor

    • Last Monitor - Moves to the last monitor

    • Goto Monitor - Moves to a specified monitor

    The Multi-Monitor Function listbox contains the monitor function. The Monitor Number listbox contains a list of monitors available on your desktop.

    If you are creating a new hotkey, the first option in the Multi-Monitor Function listbox is already selected.

  4. Under Step 3, in the text field, type the keystrokes of your choice that will act as the hotkey.

    To determine where the hotkey will be active, click Show Details.

  5. (Optional) Specify where the hotkey will be active.

    • Everywhere - The created hotkey takes precedence over an application assigned hotkey

    • Only in application windows - The hotkey is effective only in an application window

    • Only on the desktop - Hotkey is effective only on the backdrop of the monitor

  6. Click Save As New.

  7. Click Cancel to close the dialog box.

  8. In the main Hotkey Editor window, choose Save from the File menu.

    This will activate the hotkey.

Once you have completed creating a hotkey, you can begin creating another new hotkey without exiting the current Edit Key dialog box.
