    Default Use the Windows logo key on your keyboard

    Windows 7, and some earlier

    Use the Windows logo key on your keyboard, they put it there for a reason.
    Windows key + D minimizes all windows, shows desktop. Again, restores the windows.
    Windows key + E opens explorer to My Computer
    Windows key + F opens search
    Windows key + L locks your system
    Windows key + Pause / Break opens System Information (maybe the only time you’ll ever use Pause / Brk Scrn)

    Note: The Windows key + L locks your system... it is great when you go for coffee...you just enter your password when you return
    (I know you could just log off...but the short cut is convenient too)

    Also, the windows key and your numbers along the top, open the programs in the corresponding places on your quick launch bar.
    Always remember you're unique.
