Default Windows Shortcut Keys Question...

Is there a way to change what WindowsKey+R does? I've made my own personal "Run" program, and wish to use it as my default Run program instead of Windows'.

is the "Run" in an .exe format? If it is you can click properties and shortcut keys and type what you want.

Wow, I actually never knew you could do that. Thanks.

Also, how would I go about programming these programmable keys anyways? If I try to set a program's shortcut key to my "calculator" button, it says Ctrl + Alt + F, but that's not even right, and it doesn't work. Hmm.
