Recently Viewed Items Menu - Keyboard Shortcut?

How can I assign a keyboard shortcut to access the "Recently Viewed Items" menu within EG? I've looked all over the interwebs (ok, maybe just the first two pages of Google results...) and I can't find guidance on how to do this.

 

For reference, I'm using EG 5.1 hotfix 16 in a 32-bit remote app configuration.

I am not aware that EG has one. EG inherited those shortcut keys from Base SAS program editor, and they are only valid in EG program editor.

Unfortunately, as Haikuo guessed, EG does not currently have a keyboard shortcut for accessing the "Recently Viewed Items" dropdown.  That would be a nice improvement.

Just saw this thread with the same question:

See Chris' reply in that thread about using the free AutoHotKey tool to possibly fill in the gap.

Thanks, Casey! It looks like I need to investigate that utility Chris mentioned.
