In this present time, majority of us already know how to use a computer. It may be for gaming, browsing the web, for office or school. Computers were made not just for fun and pleasure but mainly because it could make our lives easier. In this article, I’ll be sharing some useful shortcut keys for windows 7 that could be useful whether you are in the office or in school. Most of us are aware that there are several shortcut keys available for Windows but in this article, I’ll be only specifying those keys that could really be helpful for productivity. “Ctrl + Shift + Esc” – This shortcut key will directly open the task manager for you. This shortcut is commonly used when there is a certain program that suddenly won’t respond especially when the mouse cursor won’t appear. “Windows key + Up Arrow” – This is used to maximize the current window that you are using. Instead of clicking the maximize button, you could also use this shortcut. “Windows key + Down Arrow” – This is used to minimize the current window. “Windows + Left Arrow/ Right Arrow” – In Windows 7, when you drag a window on either the left... or the right side, it will automatically cover one side of the screen. This would be the shortcut key of it. This would be useful if you want to maximize your desktop like if you want to browse the net on the other side while watching a video clip on the other side. “Windows + Space” – This is basically the shortcut key for you to see your desktop. This is useful when you got several windows running at the same time. “Windows + D” – This is the shortcut for all active windows to be minimized. “Windows + P” – If you are using a projector, this shortcut would be useful for you to see the presentation options available. For those using laptops, this might not be needed because laptops do have shortcuts keys for presentation but for desktops, this shortcut key is a must to remember. “Windows + F” – If you want to search for a certain folder or file, this shortcut is for the Windows Search. “Windows + E” – This shortcut enables you to open the Windows explorer. This could also be a shortcut key for you to open your Local Disk. “Windows + Tab” – This key will enable you to switch for your current window to a certain window that you want. If you have enabled the Aero feature of Windows 7, it would also give you a preview of the windows that are currently active. Above are only some of the many shortcut keys available for Windows that could help you be more productive.
