Customize Keyboard Shortcuts in Any Application

Mac OS X lets you customize the keyboard shortcuts for applications in System Preferences> Keyboard & Mouse. Unfortunately lots of people give up when they don’t see their favorite application listed as one of the choices in the Application menu. (The Application menu appears after you select Application Keyboard Shortcuts at the bottom of the list, then click the + button to add a shortcut).

Don’t give up. Just drag down to the bottom of the list of applications to Other. This will let you navigate to your favorite application.

It seems that Mac OS X doesn’t list applications that are within their own folders within the Applications folder.
