Here are a few useful keyboard combinations that Windows users should keep in mind to use the computer more conveniently and effectively:

Press the Windows key: Open the Start menu on the computer, similar to when clicking the Start button.

Windows + A: Open the “Action Center” dialog box (for Windows 10).

Windows + D or Windows + M: Minimize all open windows and move to the desktop.

Windows + Shift + M: In contrast to the above function, this key combination will restore the open window before shrinking to the taskbar.

Windows + E: Open Windows Explorer window to access the files on the computer.

Windows + Q: Activate Windows search dialog.

Windows + R: Activate the “Run” dialog box on Windows.

Windows + U: Activate the installation item on Windows.

Windows + Spacebar (long bar): Make all windows transparent (for Windows 7) or switch keyboard language on Windows 10.

Windows + left arrow key (right respectively): Brings the window to the left half of the screen (or to the right). This way, you can put two windows in parallel on the two halves of the screen, convenient in comparing or contrasting something with each other.

Windows + up arrow key (corresponding down): Brings the window to minimize or maximum size.

Windows + Tab: Show all open windows to easily move to the necessary window.

Windows + T: Move to the open window on the taskbar. Hold down the “Windows” key and press the T key to move from left to right. When you get to the icon of the required window, press Enter to open that window.

Windows + B: Move the cursor to the item showing hidden icons on the taskbar. Press Enter or Space key to display them.

Windows + 1 (from 1 to 9): Activate the software marked (pin) on the taskbar, in order of 1 to 9 (from left to right).
