    Can I list all my cntr+Alt+ bindings/keyshortcuts


    I just defined a key shortcut for one of my program shortcuts on desktop.
    CTRL+Alt+K
    So that made me wondering if it is possible to somehow list all my currently active key shortcuts (like before I define my new one). Maybe I overrule some other shortcut ...

    Thanks for feedback essenbe. No, what I need is like some way to retrieve every key shortcut for cntr+Alt that my system knows about in my current program focus. That mean I would also list any key shortcut that I have defined myself. Somewhere in my system that information has to get registred whenever I define my private key shortcuts. Also inbuilt key shortcuts might be registred somewhere else or maybe same place.

    Hi, this is apparently not as straightforward as it might appear. Keys can be defined in all sorts of contexts - currently I don't believe there is one single list- my guess would be it's maintained dynamically by Windows - not some neat list in the registry, for example.

    As you may know the question has been asked many times over the years.

    Some of the more interesting ones I found that may help - although they could be out of date:
    How can I see all the assigned keyboard shortcuts, including those from my installed add-ons? | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support

    Unfortunately this one is x86 only so very old (I list it only so you know it's obsolete if you come across it)
    New program: Ethervane ActiveHotkeys (freeware) - DonationCoder.com

    Explanation/discussion:
    Show registered keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys)

    Thx Dalchina, lot of interesting stuff there ..... Like AltGr replaces Cntr+Alt :)
    I tested one software, Windows Hotkey Commander. It grabbed a number of hotkeys from system. But it did not cover the hotkeys I defined myself.

    Anyway I now realize my question was a lot more complex than I anticipated he he

    By the way- don't use Hotkey Explorer on win 10. It behaves badly- found a warning on that.

    Ok, that is really interesting. When I tested Windows Hotkey Commander it was also misbehaving at installation time. Like activating magnify glass and stuff ..... almost freaked me out it was some malware. Was ok though to use after I restored the fuzz stuff. Hotkey Explorer seem even worse by my quick google. Too bad ... sounded pretty much like what I would have wanted.
