More Windows Key Shortcuts


Here are two favorite shortcuts of mine. Both feature the underutilized Windows Key .

To Open an Explorer Window

  • Hold the Windows Key and press ‘E‘.

This combination offers a fast(er) way to get to your files and folders.


To Open a ‘Run’ window

  • Hold the Windows Key and press ‘R‘.

To launch a program or access a file (provided you have the program name or file path), use this Windows Key combo.
