16 Windows Key tips for Windows 8
Since I bought my new laptop, I haven’t really used the Windows key located between the fn key and alt key of my laptop’s keyboard, until today. I figured out some useful key combination that I think would benefit you.
Below you will find 15 uses for the Windows key:
Windows key + D: will switch to your desktop.
Windows key + Q: will show all available apps.
Windows key + R: will open Run.
Windows key + L: will log you out of the system.
Windows key + C: will display the time, date, day and charm menu bar.
Windows key + M: will minimize any open application.
Windows key + F: will open Search for files.
Windows key + P: will open second screen option.
Windows key + E: will open My Computer.
Windows key + W: will open Search for settings.
Windows key + 2: will open libraries (documents, pictures, music, videos).
Windows key + 4: will switch from one open application to another.
Windows key + +: will open Magnifier or zoom in.
Windows key + -: will zoom out.
Windows key + X: will open Windows Tools Menu.
Press and hold Windows key will show the Start screen.blog comments powered by Disqus
