    Keyboard Shortcut to open browser

    Hi all

    Was wondering if there is a shortcut to launch your default browser from your keyboard. Instead of having to use your mouse to click on it?

    Or if I can set one up?

    Most after-market keyboards come with an array of special function keys and also a FN key that allows a second function for the F keys.

    I use all Logitech keyboards and all of mine have this programmed as an extra function on the F1 key (you can also set whether the FN key is needed to access either the FN keys or additional functions

    These keyboards are available at various prices from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars so a suitable unit should not be difficult to find something

    There are software options to add this sort of functionality to keyboards without them built in - But I'm not sure of a reliable one for Windows 10
