    Or you could press win-D (Windows key and D) to get to the desktop. I’m a keyboard kinda guy; if I don’t have put my hand on the mouse, I’m happy. 🙂

    Yes i agree, the less mouse use the better. Oviously not for design work etc but when using a computer I can do what ever need be in a matter of seconds.

    Also try StartKey + M, this does the same as StartKey + D but will closed active pages that are refreshing as well as any other pages.

    Hope this helps, Have fun,
