Did you know?

Today I just found out a lot of interesting shortcuts I wish I knew years ago!

For example, did you know that if you keep the control key (Ctrl) down and press the + key (it has to be the + key, not the combo += key close to the backspace key; if you don’t have a numeric keypad, you could first lock the numberpad on a laptop keyboard and then use the + key), Windows automatically resizes all your columns in a column-ish UI (such as Task Manager). There you go! 15 years of computing!

One other cool thing I found out today was that Windows allows you to balance between the open apps + windows. So if you Alt+Tab in Windows, you only scroll between the open apps. And if you Ctrl+Tab, you scroll around the open views/windows inside an app. But if you hold down the Ctrl key and click the Left-button of the mouse, you can scroll between all the views open in the application group that the mouse curso if over. You have to try this! I absolutely love it!

One more cool thing I had no idea about: if you hold down the Ctrl key when you click the New Task menu option in Task Manger, you automatically get an command prompt opened! How cool is that?

Hope you’ll find this shortcuts as usefull as I do!

Happy Easter!
