Hi, I want to create a shortcut key combination by using CTRL and one other character but the minute I hit CTRL, windows automatically adds + ALT to it and I can't seem to delete ALT.  Is there a way to change and/or disable the default CTRL + ALT?
Thanks

Which software are you using to create the custom shortcut keys. I am aware of some keyboards which allows it.

My Razer keyboard allows it. I am using it wih ViruaWin to switch between desktops and other things.

By default it doesn't add ALT. You have to check software configuration.

I am not using any software, I simply created a shortcut in Win 7 and assigned the hot keys to it.  -  I'm trying out another option which is to run a command in explorer but I need the Target No. for the "LOCAL AREA CONNECTION STATUS" window.  Do you know where I can find it?

Go to network connections, right click local area connection, create shortcut, it will create a shortcut at desktop. Then you can assign a shortcut key.
