Shortcut Keys in Windows Seven 7

Following on from my updated list of Windows Vista Shortcut keys (which all seem to work in Windows 7 as far as I can tell) I have shamelessly copied a list of Windows 7 Shortcut keys from Mintywhite (aka Windows guides)

Windows Key + left arrow = dock window to the left hand side of the screen

Windows Key + right arrow = dock window to the right-hand side of the screen

Windows Key + SHIFT + Left arrow = Move the current window one monitor to the left

Windows Key + SHIFT + right arrow =  Move the current window one monitor to the right

Windows Key + up arrow = maximise current window

Windows Key + down arrow = Minimize current window

Windows Key and Home = Minimize/maximise non-active windows

Windows Key and numbers  = Launch programs from the taskbar

Windows Key and Space = Enable Aero Peek

Windows Key and P = open projector mode to change external display settings

Windows Key + T Jump to the taskbar to select a new windows with <β€”or –> and Enter

CTRL + Left Click = Use on taskbar items to switch between windows of that program only

Shift and Left click = use on taskbar items to open another instance of that program

any more let me know

    for those of you sadly missing your Winkey + E Shortcut to bring up the explorer window — you will be enlightened and delighted to know that this functionality has not been replaced by The Libraries window but rather moved over to CTRL – ALT – E – which will now bring up your explorer window with my computer view, showing your harddrives.. slightly different key stroke.. same beloved functionality. Enjoy! took me a few to figure out!
