    I am trying to implement shortcut key for my application and I try to use RadShortcuts to add into Shortcuts property of component such as TextBoxElement, ButtonElement. But it seems that the RadShortcuts does not work as I expected. 

    For Ex: 

    1. I create a RadShortcut with combination of Shift+LWin+M, there is no event fired.

    2. I use Shift+M+LWin -> it works.

    Any one know how to create RadShortcut as #1 ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Hung,

    Thank you for writing.

    The pressed keys are handled by a special class which is filtering the Windows messages reaching the application. The LWin + M combination appears to be reserved to the operating system and it is responsible for minimizing the windows: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12445/windows-keyboard-shortcuts. Such a combination is filtered before reaching the Winforms application, hence the shortcut will not raise the event.
