I don't think there is a hotkey assigned to that action by default. However, you can define your own hotkey:

MPLAB -> Configure -> Settings... -> Hot Keys -> Command -> PICkit 2 Programmer.Program


I don't have MPLAB open right now, but you can use keys for most things. Maybe there isn't a single hot key for DEBUG > PROGRAM, but Alt-D G (or whatever the key for "program" is) should do it. You might be able to assign your own hot key, but I haven't played with that recently.


Another option would be to use the cli version of the programmer PK2CMD.
