Resource Editor: How To Edit Accelerators

Accelerators are closely related to menus both provide the user with access to an application's command set. Typically, users rely on an application's menus to learn the command set and then switch over to using accelerators as they become more proficient with the application. Accelerators provide faster, more direct access to commands than menus do.

Accelerator IDs cannot be edited. These values are hard coded into the target file. Changing them is likely to cause the modified program to crash.
