    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

The first thing you need is the "exec" of the program. The exec is the command that launches the program if you run it in terminal. For example, type firefox in terminal and hit enter. You can do the same with nautilus and gedit. You get the picture.

If the exec is not obvious, you can find it in the file at /usr/share/applications/<program you want>. Most software can be found there unless it has installed somewhere else, or is a Flatpak, etc. Regardless of where or what, you need the command that launches the program. Open the application file and look at the line that says "exec".

Next, open Settings > Keyboard Shortcuts and scroll to the bottom, where you'll see a plus sign. Click that to add your shortcut. Name it what you want, type the exec and supply your combo. As long as it doesn't clash with existing shortcuts you'll be good to go.

There's already a shortcut for this by default, super + b
That's your default browser. If you want shortcuts for browsers that are not default, you'll have to make them. I have Firefox set as default with super + b, but I have Chromium set to super + c.
