Windows shortcuts - makes life easier


Recommended Posts

If you are fed up deleting an item from the recycle bin, press and hold the "Shift" key then press the "Delete" key on your keyboard while the item is selected.

Press and hold the "Windows Logo" button then pressing the "Pause" button on your keyboard displays the "System Properties".

By pressing and holding the "Windows Logo" button then pressing the "R" button on your keyboard opens up "Run".

Pressing and holding "Alt" then pressing the "Enter" button on your keybpard while the item is selected displays the file's properties.

By pressing "F2" on your keyboard while the item is selected you can rename the file.

And this one is my favourite: To restart just windows and not your whole computer, hold down the "Shift" key on your keyboard when you click the "Restart" button with your mouse on the shutdown screen. Saves time!

Alt+F, R --> jump to Open Recent menu

Alt+H, D --> jump to Help->Donate ;)

In Windows Vista there are some great new keyboard shortcuts. Win+#, where # is a number from 1-9 and 0 (for "10") will open the corresponding Quick Launch shortcut. I use the Search in the start menu a lot: if I hit Win, then P, then Enter (in quick succession -- no need to wait for the search results to populate) it will open Paint.NET. Win, F, Enter opens FireFox. Win, "sdk", Enter opens the Windows SDK Documentation (very important for me! :)). And so on and so forth.
