Applying custom shortcuts

You can edit existing- or define custom shortcuts for all actions which you can find in the menu manager.
There are 3 menu managers:

Main toolbar

Some actions are in all 3 of them, some are.g. only on the downloadlist menu manager.

Global shortcuts for actions which are not available in the mentioned menu managers cannot be edited.


Removing shortcuts
There is no button to explicitely remove a shortcut but you can reset a shortcut of an action to its default value with the yellow-arrow button nearby.
If the default is "no shortcut", that will remove the shortcut.


How to find the respective menu editors
Rightclick in the downloadlist/linkgrabber/toolbar -> Open menu editor
