    >>>So If I delete this desktop icon then ctrl+alt+z will not work.

    This will not work because you are assigning these combination of keys to a shortcut or application. So when you delete shortcut the keys will also be deleted. Then this function should be built into Explorer.exe because it is default shell and always active. You can do one thing you can use Windows predefined shortcut keys for your calculator. This should help you because you can define any other key except doing some short of programming in shell.

    SunCalculator is a visually enticing, technically advanced calculator that's an excellent, much more powerful substitute for the more ordinary-looking calculator shipped with Windows. This mathematical brain, which is an attractive cobalt blue, features several modes of operation, each accessible with the click of a button. Advanced Mode (the default) is for standard calculations as well as operations involving trigonometry, logarithms, and reciprocals. Complex Mode is for multiple-window trigonometric and complex-number figuring. Finally, Graph Mode is for plotting functions, roots, critical points, and integral/derivative/average values. An Expression Evaluator lets you evaluate any drawn function, and a Function Analysis feature calculates roots and critical points. There's even a useful MathPad text editor. This trial version is limited to 50 uses
