Change AutoCAD Default Shortcuts

The Keyboard Shortcuts in AutoCAD which are assigned by default need to be changed sometimes for personal favorite commands. For example, I needed to change the COPY command to ‘C’ and CIRCLE command to ‘CR’, as I use COPY very often and more than CIRCLE. For doing so,

From the ribbon, go to –
Tools > Customize > Edit Program Parameters (acad.pgp)

Now change the required shortcuts in the Wordpad.
If not activated, then close and restart AutoCAD and try again.
