    I would say the best way to do this would be to download a third-party utility.  Here is one that is rated well on and is free.

          Hi Sharath
                You do not need 3rd party for this. Right-click the shortcut you want>Properties. Click on Shortcut key. Press a key combination (ctrl+alt+e for example). Click apply, then click OK. Make sure this shortcut exist on desktop.
