Shortcuts save you time, but only if you remember them. Here are some Windows 10 shortcuts we think you’ll find useful – some more than others, of course. These are the ones we use most often; we hope they will save you time too! The more you use a shortcut, the easier it is to remember. So try using keyboard shortcuts as often as you can. And remember, in Windows there are most always several ways to accomplish the same thing.

Note: In the tip below we use Winkey to represent the Windows Key. The Windows Key is the key with the Windows logo on it, usually located on the bottom row of your keyboard just to the right of the Ctrl key or the second key to the right of the Ctrl key. The exact location varies with keyboards, laptops, desktops, etc.
