In last post, I told you how to use existing hot keys to save time. However, we can also create hot keys to run other applications in Ubuntu. For example, how can we create a hotkey to launch a new terminal? It is too easy to do that because Ubuntu has a built-in utility for assigning shortcut keys. Go to System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts and .. I think that you know what to do now. In this case, I used F10 to launch my terminal.
