Neat keyboard trick in Windows Vista

If you haven't hidden the Quick Launch toolbar from your taskbar, pressing the Windows key plus the index of the shortcut in the toolbar will launch that application.

For example, on my desktop Windows+1 launches IE, Windows+2 launches Outlook, Windows+3 launches OneNote, and Windows+4 and +5 launch customized build environments.

    Great suggestion!

    Thanks for the tip!

    It would be great to see that in the tooltip when you hover over the button.
