Hi all,

  • WinKey or Ctrl+Esc: Start menu 
  • WinKey+R: Run dialog box
  • WinKey+M: Minimize all 
  • SHIFT+WinKey+M: Undo minimize all 
  • WinKey+F1: Help 
  • WinKey+E: Windows Explorer 
  • WinKey+F: Find files or folders
  • CTRL+WinKey+F: Find computer
  • WinKey+D: Minimizes all open windows and displays the desktop - Press second time restores previous state
  • WinKey+L: Lock Windows
  • WinKey+U: Userability (Magnifier, Reader, on screen keyboard)
  • CTRL+WinKey+TAB: Moves focus from Start, to the Quick Launch toolbar, to the system tray (use RIGHT ARROW or LEFT ARROW to move focus to items on the Quick Launch toolbar and the system tray)
