How do I keybind launcher favorite keyboard shortcut / hotkey?

asked 2016-05-21 23:16:36 -0500 gravatar image

I wish to use keyboard shortcut to launch application(s).

  • SUPER + 1 = Launch Favorite 1
  • SUPER + 2 = Launch Favorite 2
  • SUPER + 3 = Launch Favorite 3

Right now, if I press Windows Key + 1-9 nothing happens. When I navigate to Keyboard > Navigation > Shortcuts it seems like I would add it there (or the launchers).

fedora 23 keyboard screenshots shortcuts screen

p.s. - super key = windows key (but of course, you already knew that)

You can do that by selecting Custom Shorcuts and the add a key convination there with the of the program and the command line you use to launch it, like if you where using alt+f2 to launch the program for example if you want to launch a the terminal you set up name = Terminal, command= gnome-terminal

Hope that helps

This helped me and basically, I hunted down the Firefox (for example) and (R) Clicked the Icon in Files and looked at Command. I went to Keyboard > Shortcuts > Custom > + > Name = Launch FF > Command = firefox about:home I guess I'll just keep repeating process until I'm 100% happy. Thanks again!!
