Keyboard Shortcuts to Save Time

I try to use keyboard shortcuts rather than the mouse as much as possible to speed things up— so ctrl-W for closing windows, ctrl-O for opening, ctrl-P for printing, etc. Well here are some more windows keyboard shortcuts you may not be aware of:

  1. Use alt-space to open up the contextual menu for the open window. From there, you can not only minimize, but also maximize and close the window.

  2. Use Windows-Key-F to find files.

  3. If you need to step out for some coffee, in XP Windows-Key-L locks the screen and asks for a password.

  4. Use Alt-ESC to cycle through all your open windows.
