    Question Changing window's keys

    Is there any way to add or edit existing windows keys?
    such as windows + e opens up explorer windows + r opens up run... i am one lazy dude and i can't stand lifting up my hand to touch the mouse unless i absolutely have to

    in particular i'd want to add a minimize key... not all the windows, that's what windows + d or windows + m does... thanks for the help

    Is ALT-space N too much for you then?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    This is what I use. It lets you map Windows key combinations to different programs.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    At the risk of sounding obvious...

    Also, you might want to look into macro recorders which allow you to do so much more with a single keystroke than performing one action.
