I love shortcuts, especially the combos. They save me time and people are usually always amazed that I know so many. I think a big part of why I remember so many, is because I use them often.
I also find that I mostly only remember the useful ones (Who can remember Alt- to bring up the right click in Windows 3.1 which changed to SHIFT+F10 in Win98 and greater? (Go ahead, try it, it works.) Well i guess I do, but that’s besides the point). The bigges, like Win+E (My Computer)
Windows Logo+Tab (Flip 3d) and
Alt+F4 (Close Window)
are second nature to me, as I use them very often.
Here are some new ones that I just learned for Windows 7. Give them a try and see if you find any of these useful. I already like the Win+Space one.
Just remember, These are for Windows 7.
To do this
|Windows logo key +Home||Clear all but the active window|
|Windows logo key +Space||All windows become transparent so you can see through to the desktop|
|Windows logo key +Up arrow||Maximize the active window|
|Windows logo key +Down arrow:||Minimize the active window or restore the window if it’s maximized|
|Windows logo key +Left/Right arrows||Dock the active window to each side of the monitor|
|Windows logo key +Shift+Left/Right arrows||If you’ve got dual monitors, this will move the active window to the adjacent monitor|
|Windows logo key +T||Shift focus to and scroll through items on the taskbar|
|Windows logo key +P||Adjust presentation settings for your display|
|Windows logo key +(+/-)||Zoom in/out|
|Windows logo key +Click a taskbar item||Open a new instance of that particular application|
