Example

This example assigns the ALT + F1 key combination to the Organizer command.

CustomizationContext = NormalTemplate
KeyBindings.Add KeyCode:=BuildKeyCode(Arg1:=wdKeyAlt, _
    Arg2:=wdKeyF1), KeyCategory:=wdKeyCategoryCommand, _
    Command:="Organizer"

This example removes the ALT+F1 key assignment from the Normal template.

CustomizationContext = NormalTemplate
FindKey(BuildKeyCode(Arg1:=wdKeyAlt, Arg2:=wdKeyF1)).Clear

This example displays the command assigned to the F1 key.

CustomizationContext = NormalTemplate
MsgBox FindKey(BuildKeyCode(Arg1:=wdKeyF1)).Command
