Windows - helpful hints



  • Here is a tip I wrote myself a note about.
    Thought it was a good reason to add a new thread - collect windows tips here.

    When your window disappears is to make it active by clicking the entry on the taskbar, hitting Alt+Space, then M, then an arrow key. This attaches the window to your cursor, and you can move it back.



  • Learn to navigate Windows via keyboard shortcuts. This not only cuts down on time it takes to get places but also

    • makes you start menu/screen independent
    • cuts down on the amount of surface area that you have to touch on the keyboard and mouse. Especially useful when the keyboard looks like a biological research station.

    I love the keyboard shortcuts. Very useful, specially if you're working on Ms office and Excel.



  • I have used Keyboard shortcuts for years. I can't isolate a specific task, but there are times that I have one hand on the keyboard and the other on the mouse.

    When I was teaching computer and Office basics and short-cut keys was one of the things I would cover. Some of them can be such a time saver.
