I learned about Windows-D the same day I learned about how to use Alt-Tab to cycle between programs. We had a Terminal/Desktop type PC at work with no mouse but a tiny little touchpad on the keyboard (we used it as a cash register but also to check work emails and use the web for certain portions of the job). Needless to say those two shorcuts come in VERY handy.

I knew of alot of them, But there were more I never knew. I like the site, now I just have to learn them all. Or just the main ones.

This reminds me of something funny I unintentionally said once:

I was on my laptop once and I wanted to turn the volume up (with Fn [function] and page-up) and I accidentally hit Win+PgUp. Then it did something I didn't want it to do (i forget what) and I said "Remind me never to mix up the windows key with the function key!" hehe, get it? Windows doesn't function? Hehehe....well, I thought it was funny anyway.

Out of curiosity, I wondered what it does when you do █+PgUp/PgDn. It cycles programs for those of you too lazy to try it yourself. Normally, laziness is high on the list of priorities for me, but not this time.

i love keyboard shortcuts!

when people are asking me how to get somewhere in windows they were asking what and where to click...

but then i give them the keyboard shortcut,i found them with jaws dropped. they will often ask me again what to click,thinking i was giving a different answer to a different question.especially the WINDOWS + pause break which brings out system properties and CTRL +ESC for the start menu .

:D
