TECH TIP  -  The Windows Key

Have you ever used the Windows Key?  It is the key next to the Alt key the one with the Windows logo on it.  Pressing the Windows key with other keys provides some neat shortcuts.  Here is a list of some shortcuts using the Windows key.

WINKEY + M                             Minimizes all windows.
WINKEY + SHIFT + M                Undo the minimize.
WINKEY + E                              Open Microsoft Explorer.
WINKEY + F                              Display the Windows Search / Find feature.
WINKEY + Pause                      Open the system properties window.
WINKEY + L                              Lock the computer (Windows XP and above only).

You can extend the use of the Windows key with a neat little FREEWARE utility called WinKey.  With this utility you can customize the Windows key by making your own shortcut keys to open your favorite applications or folders.  This utility is very easy to install and very easy to use and uses very few system resources.
