Windows hotkeys rebinding

How can i rebind hotkeys in Windows Xp? For example i want to bind "Minimize all of the windows" command with Superkey+D and "Display the desktop" command with Superkey+M. Or change deletion to Delete and sending to rec. bin to Shift+Delete.

Does it need to stay active in process list to make affect? Because i need to change the settings permanently, so they would work without any runnig program.

Hmmm....I believe it needs to stay active. It is free, you can always download and test it.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hotkey Detective 2: Download It Here
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,944583,00.asp

excerpt....

Hotkey Detective 2 fills this gap by showing you a list of all the hotkeys defined on your system. Duplicate hotkey assignments are displayed in red. To change a hotkey, simply select it in the list and click the Change key button. Click Locate in Explorer to make other changes to the shortcut, or remove it entirely. The program also lets you print out a list of your hotkey assignments.

Never used it personally, but have seen it online on more than one occassion....

Ok. So how can i rebind permanent deletion command to "del" key and sending to recycle bin to "shift+del" combination?

johnb6767Commented:
Sorry, been away for a little while.... Shortcut keys looks to be only to manage new hotkeys for active processes.

I honestly dont know if you will be able to remap the DEL key... Talking about low level functions there.....

I will keep looking as I can.....
