For our office management application, we wish to have a global Windows shortcut to perform particular actions in our program. Most specifically, to open a new Form to interact with the user.
By comparison, we wish to function much like the Google Desktop application -- whereby pressing "Control, Control" will cause a new window / Form to appear on the user's screen, and prompt them for a search query.
Please indicate how a Windows-wide shortcut can be made, instead of just an application-specific keyboard shortcut.
Thank you in advance.
