How to find assigned 'keyboard shortcuts'?

I had a problem today that turned out to be due to an application I'd installed recently assigning a Windows 'keyboard shortcut' to run itself. It took me a while to sort this, because under Options in the program (Winspector) there was no setting for this shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+w). It must have been automatically set when Winspector was installed.

So: is there some way I can find any OTHER apps which have such keyboard shortcuts assigned please?

There used to be a free utility called "Hotkey Detective" that would list all cominations in use, but I can't find this available for download anymore.

There is another bit of software that will test all combinations for you, which may be worth a look


edit: I found something that should do the trick, try this:
