How to Set Hot Keys

Using hot keys is an integral part of using Universal Shield, because they let you run Universal Shield in Stealth Mode. Hot keys are keyboard combinations that activate a certain task, or process, such as a key combination that causes the Universal Shield software to run.

To set up hot keys:

  1. Click Options > Set hot keys. The Set hot keys dialog box opens.
  2. Select the Enable hot keys check box. This lets you use hot keys with Universal Shield.
  3. Define your hot keys for running the Universal Shield software. This hot-key combination works when Universal Shield is closed to run the Universal Shield software.
    1. Click the Open Universal Shield field, but don't type.
    2. Instead, press the keys you want to be hot keys. It's a good idea to use a combination of three keys at once, one of which must be the Shift, Ctrl, or Alt keys, such as Ctrl+Shift+1 (where, you are not pressing the + key, but + indicates you are pressing Ctrl, Alt, and 1 simultaneously).
    3. Thereafter, at any time when Universal Shield is closed, you can press Ctrl+Shift+1 (or whatever your hot keys are) to run the Universal Shield software.
  4. Define other hot keys as needed. For more information, see "Set Hot Keys".
