Feature request: ability to modify hotkey combination

 
It would be great if I could change the hotkey combination for some of the shortcuts.

For instance copy & paste are currently set to: CTRL + INSERT / ALT + INSERT.

Ideally the combination would be either:
- CTRL + SHIFT + C / CTRL + SHIFT + V (standard in Linux/Ubuntu/Gnome)
- WINDOWS KEY + C / WINDOWS KEY + V (standard in OSX)

I am using Xshell on a laptop which does not have the INS key. Yes I know I could "re-assign" one of the other combinations as a interim solution, but I would really like to use either one of the above key-combinations.

Program Ver. : Xshell 5

You can remap features by using the custom keymap. To do this, follow the steps below:

1. Open Xshell and click on the Keyboard icon in the Standard toolbar.
2. Click the New button and type

CTRL-SHIFT-C

3. For Type, select Menu
4. For Action, select [Edit] Copy
5. Click OK to save the new keyboard combination

Repeat this for paste.

However, Windows key cannot be mapped in the current version. We will consider supporting this in the future.
