In Windows, keyboard input is sent to a specific window and to handle it in another fashion means using some type of hook.

If we are talking about custom pages and if Alt+W would be acceptable then you can simply create a 0x0 size button with the text "&W" and handle its onClick.

The WndSubclass plug-in can be used to eavesdrop on keyboard messages sent to a specific window in the installer but the plug-in is difficult to use for beginners.


A "any window" type handler requires a hook and you would have to write your own custom plug-in to pull it off.
