Keyboard shortcut for probe

Highlighted

Is there a keyboard shortcut for switching to the probe tool? I would like to map the shortcut to a button on my mouse so that I do not have to go through the tools menu to select the probe tool.

 

Is there a pre-existing shortcut, and if not, can I add one?

You can add your own combination in Tools->Options->Menu Shortcuts

Not too helpful, that menu region is just for the menus on the top (file, save, run), but does not have buttons for the tools.

Can you explain which tool exactly pointing to?

-What i thought is to open Probe Watch Window(I set as Ctrl+\ )shortcut.png

 

Edit: If you meant Tool selection-> You can make Automatic tool selection and use http://www.ni.com/getting-started/labview-basics/tools

Is "right click wire -> Probe" too much for you to do for your probes?

 

Do you use probes so much that you need a better way to do them with just one click?

Thanks for the quick reply. I am aware of the proble watch window, but I would like to use the place probe tool itself. Automatic tool selection does not switch to tool when I mouse over a wire when the program is not running. I will probably use the probe watch windows hotkey as well.
