Is there a way to set hotkeys for system settings?

Post by danielson on Fri Dec 16, 2016 1:44 pm

Poor me! Blind as usual...

Is there a way to set personalized hotkeys / shortcuts to say, "eject CD", "system shutdown" etc.?

the command to eject the cd is
Code:
eject
to shutdown:
Code:
shutdown

I can program executables to do this if you want.

I'm in a transition period right now.

Have done fresh install of Win 10 but still want to dual boot with Linux.
Always liked LinuxMint Cinnamon and it has the option to set a bunch of hotkeys. Then again, i still like ChaletOS...

Is it hard to insert those "executables"?
Volume up, down, mute is always nice to have as well.

p.s. good to see you're still alive James! Smile

if there are, I doubt there would be an increase/decrease command. just to set it to x percent, I'm guessing.
