Most people using any computer only use a very small fraction of its features and capabilities.  One of those features is the Windows Logo Key.   Here are my 7 favourite uses for this key – quick shortcuts to help you work more quickly and efficiently:

  Open or close Start
 + E Open File Explorer
 + I Open settings
 + L Lock your PC
 + M Minimize all windows
 + Shift + M Restore minimized windows on the desktop
 + Up arrow Maximize the window


Note: Depending on the age of your keyboard, the key may have either the
 key or the older


key.  Both keys do the same thing.


There are many other uses for this key, but these are the ones I think are the most helpful to most people.  Of course, all of these functions are also available by clicking other buttons, such as the Windows button  on your screen,


the File Explorer button , or others.
