Can you set a keyboard shortcut for Windows CMD command?

I am running Windows 8.1 Pro and would like to know if it is possible to have a keyboard shortcut to start



using CTRL+ ALT+X

Note: I currently have a workflow where I have a batch file (KillTask.bat) using the command and a desktop shortcut for KillTask.bat using the CTRL+ ALT+ keyboard shortcut X.

Screenshot (Here's a link explaining the workaround)

Is there a more direct way to do this with a keyboard shortcut without using desktop shortcuts and batch file?

You don't need it .bat

. You can do the following:

1. Create a shortcut and add the path:

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c taskkill /F /FI "STATUS eq NOT RESPONDING"


2. Get the properties of the shortcut and place the key shorctus, you want to: CTRL + ALT + X


And it's all. The only file you need is a shortcut.

What is important is what you run cmd.exe

with /c

to specify the command you want to run.

EDIT: Thanks eryksun!

Better yet, we can just call taskkill


C:\Windows\System32\taskkill.exe /F /FI "STATUS eq NOT RESPONDING"


But still you need a shortcut file.
