If you’re a regular Windows 7 user, here are 10 of the best and most useful keyboard shortcuts for you to use and memorise:


  • Win + any number on the keyboard = starts apps on the taskbar, or moves to that program.
  • Shift + win + any number = opens a new version of that program.
  • Ctrl + win + any number on the keyboard = moves through windows.
  • Win + t = moves through items listed on the taskbar.
