Here are some useful Winkey combinations that you might find useful (in the list below “Win +” means “press the Windows key along with…”):

  • Win + E: Run Windows Explorer
  • Win + R: Show Run window
  • Win + U: Run Utility Manager
  • Win + D: Show Desktop (by minimizing all windows, press this combination again to restore them)
  • Win + F: Run Windows Search
  • Win + L: Log out from Windows
  • Win + B: Go to Windows taskbar notification area
  • Win + M: Minimize All Windows
