If the format CTRL-SHIFT-F is acceptable, you could do the following:

Create a macro (Tools, Macro, Record New Macro). In the Record Macro dialog box, name your macro and in the Shortcut key field enter "F" while you hold down the SHIFT key.  Hit Ok, then stop recording the macro.  Edit the macro (Tools/Macro/Macros, select your macro, then click the Edit button).  Erase the contents of the macro and replace with Userform.show--enter the name of your form instead of "Userform".  From then on, whenever someone presses CTRL-SHIFT-F, your userform will appear.
