In Windows, you can assign a different hotkey to perform a specific action or launch an application using built-in features or third-party software. However, if you want to change or override an existing system-wide hotkey (e.g. Alt+Tab or Win+D), this can be more complex and may require third-party software or custom scripting.

Using third-party software (QuickTextPaste):
In Quick Text Paste, there is no need for complex scripting language to automate tasks in Windows. This allows you to assign another hotkey to an existing hotkey without programming.
The complex process of creating a new auto hotkey script is not required or opening a script in Notepad.
If you want to remap/convert the hotkey, you don't need to use any code:
remember that you can customize the hotkey and action as needed.
Using Windows keyboard shortcuts (limited customization):
Windows allows you to customize some hotkeys through the keyboard settings:
A. Press Win + i to open Windows Settings.
B. Go to “Devices” and then select “Input” in the left sidebar.
C. Scroll down and click “Input language hotkeys” under “Advanced keyboard settings.”
D. In the Advanced Key Settings tab, you will see a list of hotkeys, including hotkeys for switching input languages. You can assign a different keyboard shortcut to these voice hotkeys.
Unfortunately, this method is limited to certain hotkeys and actions.
For advanced customization and remapping of system-wide hotkeys, Quick Text Paste or other third-party tools are the best options. For God's sake, always be careful when remapping or overriding system-wide hotkeys, as this may affect the normal operation of your computer or applications. Be sure to test the new hotkey to make sure it works as intended.
