I just discovered that you can hotkey stuff on the 1-8 (non-numpad) keys.
Just open your favorites, hover the mouse over what you want hot-keyed and press a number.
For example: I have shield on 1, sparks on 2, and heal on 3.
before I added them to favorites... they were equiped on the left hand (right mouse button)
It's very handy to quickly switch my left hand "equipped" item/spell, and be able to still swing my sword.
EDIT: Actually I just changed 3 to potions of healing, instead of casting the spell, since I have no intention of raising Restoration.
That might help some folks.This comment was edited on Nov 12, 2011, 12:05.
