10 Windows Keyboard Tricks To Turn You Into A Navigation Wizard

Keyboard shortcuts help us save time when working on urgent tasks. Thankfully, Microsoft keyboards can execute shortcuts in Windows and throughout various Microsoft applications. If you create and edit files, work with tabs, or simply spend a lot of time searching the web, these are the keyboard shortcuts you need to know.

 

1. F1 – display Help

What to do when you get stuck? Press F1, of course. We've all been there – you've just started working in your new LibreOffice Writer, and you just can't get the hang of it. Well, no worries, clicking F1 takes you to the Help page, which displays the features, instructions, tips, contents, menus, and more shortcuts.

 

 

2. Ctrl + A – select all items in a document or window

This is a very handy shortcut if you want to select the entire Turn Blue album by the Black Keys and pass it on to your media player. The Ctrl + A shortcut selects all songs in the folder, so you don’t have to drag and drop selected files, or click the songs one by one.

 

3. Ctrl + C + Ctrl + V – copy and paste a selected item

The next best thing to Ctrl+A, or select all, is the copying and pasting of items. That Black Keys Album is going to sound so good when you've pasted it into your media player.

 

4. Alt + F4 – Close, or exit the active program

Do you find yourself opening 64 tabs at once because the Internet was just so fun that day? I do. You can close those tabs just as effortlessly as you opened them with a single shortcut. Press Alt and F4, and your browser closes immediately.

 

5. Shift + Delete – permanent delete/delete selected item without moving it to the recycle bin first

Avoid doubling your deletion effort. Those pictures of your last holiday with your ex-boyfriend can be obliterated, without having to revisit them in the recycling bin, with the Shift and Delete keyboard shortcut. He wasn't really your type, so...

6. Windows logo key + E – open Windows Explorer

Jump to your computer without having to minimize all your open tabs and windows. Press the Windows logo key along with the E key to arrive at the external hard drive that has your favourite Jackie Chan film, thus sidestepping all windows and tabs.

 

7. Windows logo key + F – Find files or folders

Can't find what you're looking for? No rush. Pressing the Windows logo key and F finds anything in a press-second. How did last semester's tests get mixed up with the Christmas pictures at Auntie Kaya’s? It's a funny story, but the finder always knows where everything is.

 

8. Windows logo key + Tab – cycle through taskbar buttons

If you're in the working zone on a busy Monday with spreadsheets of accounts to go over, emails to answer, and client lists to check, the Windows logo key + the Tab key is your best option to navigate all taskbars. At least, that's how I own my Monday!

9. Ctrl + D – add a web page to your favorites

Just moved to a new neighbourhood and need to find the best interior design for your living room? Or make a note of your  new favourite take-out place? Simply press Ctrl and D to add all those good web pages to your favourites, and you're on the right path to setting new routines.

 

10. Ctrl + Z – undo an action

Last but not least, my favourite key combo: the Ctrl and Z. Whenever you need to alter your last action, this shortcut will save you the trouble of recreating that deleted client portfolio, or rewriting that deleted final paragraph. If only we could Ctrl + Z in life.

 

Your day is saved with these keyboard shortcuts! Use them wisely!
