Default Change launch keyboard shortcuts?

Please Login to Remove!

I keep searching and can't find the answer.
How do I change the keyboard shortcuts that launch apps I use often?
Would love to do that and hope that I can!
Thanks

As far as I have read, I don't think such a thing comes without serious know-how. You can enable or disable the home screen shortcuts, and certain 3rd party applications will add to those shortcuts (e.g. ToDoMatrix adds "X" shortcut; IdeaMatrix adds "I" shortcut).

I'm definitely down with the shortcuts. I've mastered all of them, and the subfolders' shortcuts as well--love it. They make 90% of my navigation on my BB a cinch!

Maybe someone else can enlighten on the "serious know-how" aspect / programming?

I am learning the shortcuts as well, and they rock... there are a ton that make a huge speed difference on imput and general use.
I just wish I could change/add launch keyboard shortcuts.... so I can make one for BBWeather and apps that I use a lot.
Thanks, maybe someone will know!

I'm on my first Qwerty device and am just getting used to them. I notice (at least on the 8320) that the when you highlight the app icon, the description at the bottom contains an underlined letter that corresponds to the shortcut key for that app.

Exactly! Now the question is.... how do we change them? Or can we? That way the most frequently used apps can have the shortcuts? I can't find it anywhere so I am thinking the answer is no....

No, they can't be changed. They are built into the OS.

Sorry but Blackberry is not as malleable as some wish. RIM's OS is pretty well locked tight!

Agreed.... just came over from 4 years with a PPC phone... love the 8830 a ton. Some things I miss, but overall this system is killer. But changing the keyboard shortcuts to launch apps would be great. Like how Pocketday becomes 'Y', I would like to make BBWeather 'W'.. etc.
Oh well.
Thanks for the heads up guys.

Is there a post somewhere of the shortcuts. One of the previous replies asked this same question. I have been searching through the forum and have not found my answer yet...

Yes see the tips doc for the 8300 at my tips site and make a donation for Bay Area wildlife for the oil spill.
