In my experience with Win 2000 and XP (happily, no experience yet with Vista), keyboard shortcuts to icons on the taskbar don’t work reliably. Instead set a shortcut to an item within the Start menu (right-click on a menu item and open its Properties dialog).
Perfect. I’ll just move FF to the first pos and use windows key - 1.
This works (though not with windows key - I, but with ctrl - alt - I)
Thanks to both of you. I think I’ll go with the former (windows key - 1) as it requires less keys, and also I now know how to load up the other stuff on the ql bar
CTRL-N should open a new window of most any application you are currently using.
(EDIT) You should also be able to map that to anything, but I’m on Linux so I can’t tell you how. But as an example, I have my function keys to open my favorite programs. F2 opens firefox, or a new window if it’s already running
