Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows

Windows have included a number of keyboard shortcuts that allow you to execute simple tasks quickly. We all know about Ctrl+c for copy and so on and some of us have reached black belt level by finding Windows Logo+e to open Windows Explorer but if you want to get really tricky check out this list here.

Here is a sampler:

  • Windows Logo: Start menu
  • Windows Logo+R: Run dialog box
  • Windows Logo+M: Minimize all
  • SHIFT+Windows Logo+M: Undo minimize all
  • Windows Logo+F1: Help
  • Windows Logo+E: Windows Explorer
  • Windows Logo+F: Find files or folders

But my favourite from the list is this one – CTRL+Windows Logo+F: Find computer (!)

p.s. The rerun of the session on screenshots will take place tomorrow at lunchtime (1:30) in IT3. Hope to see you there!

    Amazing stuff sir. I like all the shortcuts that I have never heard of.
