A recent article (How To Minimize All Windows To The Taskbar) talked about a windows shortcut I find helpful generated some comments listing other shortcuts. I thought I would present a list of other shortcut keys that can make things easier. This list is based on the Microsoft Article.
|Windows Logo||Start Menu|
|Windows + R||Opens the Run dialog box|
|Windows + M||Minimize all open windows|
|Shift + Windows + M||Undo minimize all|
|Windows + F1||Windows Help|
|Windows + E||Windows Explorer|
|Windows + F||Find files or folders|
|Windows + D||Minimizes windows, displays the desktop (this is a toggle, doing it again will restore everything)|
|Windows + L||Lock the computer|
|Windows + Tab||Cycles through taskbar buttons|
|Windows + Break||Shows system properties dialog|
You can also set up your own shortcuts by choosing Properties from the right-click context menu of any program in the start menu, and choose a shortcut key.
