Hi John. Select one of your existing shortcuts for running JAWS, eg, the one 
on the desktop, or the one on the programs or All Programs menu.
Open its context menu. You can do this by pressing the Applications key 
which is to the left of the righthand control key, or by right-clicking it 
with the mouse, or by pressing Shift-F10.
Choose Properties from the menu and hit enter.
Ensure you are on the Shortcut Tab. You can do this by tabbing to the list 
of page tabs and using Left and Right to choose the correct one, or by 
repeatedly pressing ctrl-tab till you reach the right one.
Tab to the field called Shortcut Key, and press and hold down the group of 
keys you want, eg, ctrl alt j.
Tab to OK and hit Enter.

Be careful not to tab back to the shortcut key field, as this seems to erase 
its contents.

Cheers.

John
