I need to execute a piece of code when a certain key combination (for example, ctrl+m) is executed from anywhere within Windows. I'm looking for specific code, and comments about changing the key combination. To help you out, here's what I've found:


However, I can't make very much sense of how to use it. If you can post code, tell me how to set the hook, key combination, and where to put my code to be executed, all points will be awarded to you.
