Some Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts

KeyboardThere are now a few libraries that use Windows 7 for all of their staff PCs.  So I thought it might be nice to share a few of the many keyboard shortcuts that are available in Windows 7.

These keyboard shortcuts are ones that you can do from your desktop:

  • Windows Key + D = Show/Hide Desktop
  • Windows Key + E = Launch Windows Explorer
  • Windows Key + F = Launch the Search Window
  • Windows Key + M = Minimize All Windows
  • Windows Key + Shift + M = Restore minimized Windows
  • Windows Key + Pause = Display System Properties
  • Ctrl + Shift + Esc = Launch Task Manager

These keyboard shortcuts are ones that you can do from Windows Explorer:

  • Alt + Up = Go up one level
  • Alt + Left/ Right = Back/ Forward

These are just a small sampling of all of the keyboard shortcuts that are available.  There are keyboard shortcuts available for every Microsoft product.  You can search the Internet to find them for the software you use the most.
