You can't make it work. Desktop or Startmenu is where keys can be set.

but David when i right click on the IE or any other icon in my quicklaunch ,
it has a place where i can specify shortycut key combination , also if i am
not wrong i have read that somewhere in windows help as well that if the key
combination is not already set for another application or is not reserved by
windows , it should work. All i want to do is, i have couple applications in
my quicklanunch that i have to open up pretty frequenty, i only want to set a
key combination for them, dont see a reason why i can not.

thanks

Well, as you're told already, shortcut keys do not work for items on the
Quick Launch bar but do work for items on the desktop, on the Start menu, or
in the Windows\Start Menu\Programs folder.
