    I would like to change the default keyboard shortcut for opening the Start menu search box from Ctrl+ Esc to something that requires less finger stretching, e.g. Ctrl+Q. How do I do this?

    "Something that requires less finger stretching" would be pressing the left windows button to open the start menu:

    As for remapping keys, Autohotkey is the most handy way to do so:


    ^Q::^Esc
