I want all my users to have the same keyboard shortcut to start Snipping Tool (eg. CTRL + F12)

Right clicking the Snipping Tool shortcut and selecting Properties gives you this option but i want that change to be deployed to everyone. It does not seem to make any changes in the registry.

If you pin it to the taskbar (in the furthest left position), and then Windows key + 1 would work...

Of course doing it this way, you overwrite the registry part of the user, thus, ruining his pinned items. So maybe just deploy the pinned shortcut. It will be invisible, but the keyboard shortcut will work nevertheless.
