Customised HotKeys in KDE
Kde as you'd expect has numerous options for using your keyboard
One of which is setting a key or string of keys to open programs
* Right click any Program shortcut on your desktop/KDE menu > Edit Item > Current Shortcut key
* Also can be found here > KControl > Accessibility > Keyboard Shortcuts > Command Shortcuts

* Don't Forget the Option "Multi Key Mode" allows more powerful shortcuts.
first key pressed launches a little menu, with list of actions.

ie set F1 , Z hide Window border
set F1 , X maximize Window
set F1 , F Launch Firefox (set Under 'Command Shortcuts' keys as shown above)

now press F1 , a menu is displayed
Hide Window Border Z Maximize Window X, Launch Firefox F
