Global Hotkeys

The keyboard shortcuts listed above only work when the main VueMinder main window is visible and has keyboard focus. Global hotkeys for showing the desktop calendar or main window can also be defined. These hotkeys will work regardless of whether VueMinder is visible or has keyboard focus. By default, these hotkeys are undefined. They can be specified in the Program Options. Make sure to pick a key combination that won't interfere with any of your other software.
