    Assign key to a program

    Is there a way in Win7 to assign keys on a keyboard to work exclusively
    on a application, even if that window is in the background or minimised,
    and not any other opened window at the same time?

    Yes, there is.

    As far as I know, you can't send keystrokes to a background process,
    but Autohotkey has the ability to sense whether the desired window is
    active, and switch to it if it's not, before sending the keystrokes.

    I need the keys, not hotkeys, to work on the background task only.

    on a application running in background
    assign keys on a keyboard have to be setup with
    that application before it's run in the background



    as for hotkey for Task Manager is
    Ctrl Alt Delete
    Or
    Right Click Taskbar
    then click on
    Task Manager

    If you mean what you seem to have said, I'd say that you ought to
    rethink your needs.

    What you want contradicts the very idea of focus, or equivalently,
    foreground vs background.

    Yeah, it is, but the keys also work in the foreground game too. What I
    trying to do is run two tasks of the same game and 'watch myself' to
    improve aim, as I steer with the arrow keys on the background game the
    spectating game screen moves away from what I'm looking at.

    That seems to me to be a contradiction in terms. What you're asking for
    - a key that works in a particularly wide context - is exactly what a
    hot key is.
