I would like to set a shortcut to “Customize Keyboard…” in Excel Mac 2011 so I could open the “Customize Keyboard” menu via a simple shortcut.
Apparently we can’t do do it via Excel because there is no “Customize Keyboard…” file in the “Customize Keyboard…” menu.
I tried setting one up via the System preferences but it does not work too. The shortcut doesn’t appear to be assigned.
Open System Preferences » Keyboard » Keyboard Shortcuts.
Here, create a new Application Shortcut, assign it to Microsoft Excel.app, and for the menu entry, type
Customize Keyboard… (with an ellipsis or three dots at the end.)
It should look like this, and once it’s set, you can use your custom shortcut to open the window in Excel:
