    it does not work in windows 8.1 because it is already set to create a new folder when we hold Alt and press 2, in fact combination of [alt+2] and [alt+1] create a new folder and open the properties window respectively.

    It does work! Great!
    Also discovered something.
    When you press Alt and type numbers in numpad, it actually outputs an ASCII character with ASCII code entered in.
    So, if you hold Alt and type in 1 in numpad and release, you got a smiley face!
