The old versions of Windows often take you many steps to create anything.  I read one of Shane O’neill’s articles, “Windows 7: 10 Cool Keyboard Shortcuts“, and would like to share his advice on  new shortcuts to help make using Windows 7 that much better!

5. Toggle through the applications pinned in the Windows 7 taskbar: Win+ T

6. Open and minimize an application by pressing the Windows logo key and the number corresponding to the location of the application on the taskbar: Win + 1, Win +2, Win + 3….

7. Open a new instance of an application by holding shift and the Windows logo key and the number corresponding to the location of the app on the task bar: Shift+Win+1, +2, +3…
