WinKey tips – continued


WinKey + left or right arrow key (← →) enables you to “snap” the current Window to one side of your screen, thus using only 50% of your workspace. The really clever thing about this is that, if you then select another open Window, perhaps from your taskbar or desktop, that other Window will “snap” into place alongside its neighbour!

WinKey + up arrow (↑), depending on how the current Window is sized, enables you to quickly maximise your current window, or bring it out of the taskbar.

WinKey + down arrow (↓) will either shrink the current Window to the taskbar, or shrink it to the last known size.  To get it back, see WinKey + up Arrow

WinKey + S opens the Search utility

WinKey + I opens the Settings menu

There are other WinKey shortcuts, but these are the most useful, IMHO.
