Resource Editor: How To Edit An Accelerator
Accelerators are closely related to menus both provide the user with access to an application's command set. Typically, users rely on an application's menus to learn the command set and then switch over to using accelerators as they become more proficient with the application. Accelerators provide faster, more direct access to commands than menus do.
Edit Accelerator Keys and Flags
1. Expand the Accelerator folder that’s found in the Resource Tree view, and select the target accelerator resource to be edited in the Resource Tree. You will see the ACCELERATOR script.
2. Press the Resource Editor button to edit this selected accelerator table:
3. Select the key item from the Table and make changes to its flags or code:
4. Press OK to close the Resource Editor and select 'File' -> 'Save File As ...' to save the changes you've just made to the target file. If warned that the image size has changed, click "Yes" to update the file size.
Any change you make can be restored prior to quitting the editor using the OK button. To abort your changes quit the editor using the Cancel button.
Accelerator IDs cannot be edited. These values are hard coded into the target file. Changing them is likely to cause the modified program to crash.
