Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts

Yes, I know. There are thousand posts out there with the same name, but for some reason many people haven’t seen them. Here’s a list of my favorite keyboard shortcuts in Windows 7:

Win + D – Show Desktop (minimize all windows)
Win + E – Open Computer
Win + L – Lock your computer
Win + P – Choose presentation display mode (computer only, duplicate etc)
Win + R – Open the Run dialog
Win + Space – “Aero Peak”
Win + Up – Maximize Window
Win + Left/Right – Dock the window to the left or right side of the screen
Win + Down – “Unmaximize” or minimize the window
Win + +/- – Zoom in/out
Ctrl + Shift + N – New folder

And then you’ve got a couple of shortcuts that are nice to know:
Ctrl + Shift + Esc – Open Task Manager
Win + Pause – System Properties (equal to right click computer, properties)

And then some which we’ve used for ages:
Ctrl + Esc – Equal to windows key (or clicking the start menu)
Alt + Tab – Cycle Through Windows
Alt + Shift + Tab – Cycle Through Windows, counter clock
Ctrl + Tab – Cycle through tabs in application.
Ctrl + Shift + Tab – Cycle through tabs in application, counter clock
Ctrl + C – Copy
Ctrl + X – Cut
Ctrl + V – Paste
