Shortcut key for "File-close" command

Can someone tell me how to create a Shortcut key "Alt + c"  for "File  - close" command? I like the same seeting as my Inventor seeting, and the Inventor is so easy to setup my Shortcut keys use "Tools-Customise-Keyboard".

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your help, but my hand not big enough, to do it all the times not quite easy.

Then go to TOOLS - CUSTOMISE - INTERFACE, select KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS. Then try and work out how to use that abortion of a dialogue box to actually asign a keystroke combination to do anything because I'm damned if I can figure it out.

Looks like you can't use ALT for some bizzare reason. So perhaps use CTRL+ALT+C.

Thanks Tony,

I created a shortcut key "CTRL + ALT +X" for my  "File-close" command.

It is great!

I'm having a hard time understanding CUI as well.

 

I'm trying to assign standard CTRL+W to close the file (not exit software) but I'm having no luck. I'm currently using 2012.

What about clicking on that X in the top right hand corner ?

Someone may find this info useful, I have achieved my objective by doing the following:

 

1) Open CUI > Keyboard Shortcuts > Shortcut Keys

 

2) then follow instruction as per Help

 

To create a shortcut key, you start by dragging a command from the Commands List pane to the Shortcut Keys node in the Customizations In <file name> pane. Once you create a shortcut key, you assign a key combination to it.
