These keyboard shortcuts will save you time.
From casual computer users to those of us who want to get the absolute most out of our work time, keyboard shortcuts can be a convenient way of streamlining your activity. If you type a lot like I do, your preference is probably to have both hands on the keyboard as often as possible. Windows 7 comes with some great WIN key combinations that can help quicken your pace.
|WIN+L||Locks your screen so that anyone coming to your computer must put in your password to unlock it and continue working|
|WIN + Up or Down Arrow||Toggles between minimizing or maximizing the currently selected window|
|WIN + Left or Right Arrow||Toggles position of the currently selected window to include half-screen snap (also useful for multiple monitors)|
|WIN + Spacebar||Previews the desktop by making all the open windows transparent|
|WIN + 1 through 0||Launches items in the corresponding order that are pinned to your taskbar|
|WIN + Home||Minimizes all windows except for the current one|
|SHIFT + DEL||Permanently deletes the selected file/email bypassing the recycle bin or delete items folder|
