Windows 7 keyboard Shortcuts

Top 20 shortcuts for taming your windows Becky Waring 

Managing windows is probably one of the most fertile areas for keyboard shortcuts because otherwise, you manipulate them solely with the mouse. Here's my top-20 list of must-know shortcuts for taming your windows; you'll never have to move your hands from the keyboard. For completeness, I've included many keyboard shortcuts you might already be familiar with; skip down the list to see the ones you don't know.
Switch between open windows 
Alt + Tab 
Minimize/restore all but the active window 
Windows key + Home 
Minimize all windows 
Windows key + M 
Maximize window 
Windows key + up-arrow 
Minimize/restore window 
Windows key + down-arrow 
Make all windows transparent so you can see the desktop 
Windows key + spacebar 
Dock window to left or right half of screen 
Windows key + left- or right-arrow 
Zoom in/out
  (In the default view, you must zoom in before zooming out.) 
Windows key + plus/minus sign 
Lock screen 
Windows key + L 
Open Run dialog 
Windows key + R 
Open Search box 
Windows key + F 
Open Windows Explorer to computer 
Windows key + E 
Expand Folders view in Win Explorer to show where you are 
Control + Shift + E 
Go up a level in Windows Explorer 
Alt + up-arrow 
Choose display mode/switch monitors
  (Especially useful for presenters or dual-monitor users) 
Windows key + P 
Launch apps pinned to the Taskbar
  (1 is the left-most app; Windows Key+T cycles through all apps.) 
Windows key + (number 1-9) 
Cycle through Gadgets 
Windows key + G 
Rotate a picture clockwise
  (Or use comma for counterclockwise) 
Control + period 
Use Control-click to select the pictures in a folder you need to rotate, then rotate them all at once. 
Turn Sticky Keys on and off 
Press Shift five times 
Although keyboard shortcuts can be real time-savers, sometimes it's hard to press multiple keys at once, (especially while you're eating a sandwich or holding your phone in one hand). The Windows Sticky Keys feature lets you press one key at a time as you enter a shortcut. You can turn on Sticky Keys permanently by using the Control Panel's Ease of Access Center options. 
Turn Mouse Keys on and off 
Left-Alt + Left-Shift + Num Lock 
The Windows Mouse Keys feature is a really useful shortcut that lets you control the cursor with the arrow keys on your numeric keypad. Like Sticky Keys, it can be turned on permanently in the Control Panel's Ease of Access Center, but you can also invoke it at any time by pressing this key combination. This gesture turns you into a true keyboard jockey.
Note that both Sticky Keys and Mouse Keys display a warning message when you turn them on and off. You can disable the warning boxes in the Control Panel's Ease of Access Center by choosing Set up Mouse Keys or Set up Sticky Keys. This list is just a sample of the dozens of shortcuts available.
