To Edit a Hotkey for a Multi-Monitor Management Function

  1. In the Hotkey Editor window, double-click a hotkey.

    Alternatively, select a hotkey and click Open.

    The Edit Key dialog box displays with the specifics for that hotkey.

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

    To change the type of target that the hotkey will trigger, select the appropriate option from the pull-down menu.

  3. In Step 2, select the target that the hotkey will affect:

    • Next Monitor - Moves you to the next monitor

    • Previous Monitor - Moves you to the previous monitor

    • Last Monitor - Moves you 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 from your desktop.

  4. Under Step 3, in the text field, type the keystrokes of your choice that will replace the currently defined hotkey.

  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 Update.

  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.

You cannot edit multiple hotkeys in the same Edit Key dialog box. You will have to complete the edits on the current hotkey, close the Edit Key dialog box, and then select and open the next hotkey to be edited.
