File protect.xlsm has a short macro with shortcut key CTRL+SHIFT+B.
File test.xlsx is where I want to run the macro. I can do so if I open both files and while in test.xlsx go to Developer, Macros, Run.

Is there a way I can use the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+B while in test.xlsx to run the macro?

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

Yes, as long as protect.xlsm is open, just pressing the shortcut key combo should do that.
