Simple. Set up a hotkey.

Tell ya what:
Download/Register/Use the hotkey component at If it does what you want, I'll provide the source for creating your own hotkeys. Zip contains info on using the component, it's really quite simple.

Note: Don't accept an answer if it isn't what you want!

The code for the hotkey is system-wide only. It can't be modified for only one app.

I'm looking into other methods of monitoring the keyboard or stopping the shortcut. I should be back sometime tomorrow (7/29). If not, then post another message to remind me.
