Does windows xp have any way of assigning short keys or macro like short
keys to open folders and such things?

Eg. is their any way I can create a short cut to my documents for example?

1. Launch "My Computer".
2. Navigate to where your folder or document resides.
3. Using your right mouse button, drag it to the desktop.
4. Release the right mouse button, then left-click "Create shortcut here".

In the shortcut you created - assign the keys you want. I thought you would
see that there.

Yes THERE (not their) is:

1. Navigate in Explorer to whatever document.

2. RIGHT-click, drag to desktop, and select "Create shortcut(s)
here".

3. Right-click on new shortcut, select Properties. Click into
"Shortcut Key" box and press the key combination you want. Click OK.

If you don't want to clutter your desktop, then right-click on the
Start button, select Explore, navigate to a folder somewhere under
Start Menu -> Programs (or create one), and drag your new shortcuts
into it. Shortcut keys (created in step 3 above) must be on desktop
or in start menu to be effective, if I recall correctly.
