In combination with the ‘Windows’ key, it becomes a convenient ‘global key’ | NIKKEI STYLE

Sometimes the start of the main computer is too fast to follow with the eye. The advantage is that it uses a lot of keyboards, and the combination of mouse and keys is also excellent. Let’s master it too. Not only the operation method but also the effective memorization method will be taught three times in “Re-entry”. It is a guarantee that if you wear it, you will be able to fool yourself with your co-workers.

A big misunderstanding would be to think of the “Windows” key at the bottom left of the keyboard as “a disabled key that just opens the Start Menu”. When combined with various keys such as letters and numbers, it can be used as a “public key” related to the operating system (shape 1)。

Figure 1 A number of useful operating system hotkeys are assigned to the “Windows” key located at the bottom left of the keyboard.

For example, if you combine it with a numeric key like “1” or “2”, you can launch an app pinned to the taskbar (Figure 2)。

Figure 2 Of the applications pinned to the taskbar, the 10 on the left can be launched with a combination of the “Windows” key and the “1” to “0” keys. You can change the order of the apps by dragging the icons, so it’s a good idea to sort them in the order you use them most often. Next, remember “1 is mail”, “2 is explorer” etc. It is a good idea to start with about three

Doesn’t make sense to check every time, like “what’s an Excel number?”

The point is to sort the apps in the taskbar. Since the number keys “1”, “2”, “3” … “0” are used in order from the left, sort apps in the order in which they are used most often. Furthermore, it is wise to remember your own rules, such as “1 is the email” and “2 is the explorer”. You can’t aim for the fastest process if you check the taskbar order, like “What is Excel?” It’s hard to remember if there are many, so let’s start with about three.

If you press this key while the app is running, it will switch to that app. If you want to start another Explorer etc, add the “Shift” key (Figure 3). Also remember the trick to open the jump menu by adding the “Alt” key (Figure 4)。

Figure 3 If a window is already open, the keystrokes in Figure 2 (in this example, Explorer is “1”) will only go to that window, but you can combine it with the “Shift” key to start the second and subsequent windows. Useful when you want to open Multiple explorers

Figure 4 Combining the “Alt” key opens the jump menu for that application (in this example, Explorer is “1”). Quick access to frequently used files and history

For veterans who often use the Settings screen, I highly recommend the “Windows” + “I” keys to open them in a single shot (Figure 5). It is much faster than selecting from the start menu. Let’s remember “I” from “information” and so on.

Figure 5 Hold the “Windows” key and press the “I” key to open the Windows Settings screen. Recommended because it is much faster than a mouse. The setting is originally the settings, but let’s remember it as “I” in the info.

The “Ctrl” + “V” keys are pasted, but the “Windows” + “V” keys open the clipboard history. Let’s run the function on first startup (Figure 6). Press it again to open the history of the copied text and images, select and paste (Figure 7). Remember it as a higher version of hotkey paste.

Figure 6 Hold down the “Windows” key and press the “V” key to launch Clipboard History for the first time.

Figure 7 When viewing the clipboard history after the operation shown in Figure 6, strings of characters and images copied in the past are displayed in a list. They can be pasted by selecting them with the keyboard or mouse.

「↑“big,”Small, and you can also remember the left and right arrows as a group

You can also snap windows using the “Windows” key. Remember “↑”, “” and “←” ←” as a group.

First of all, the first group, but the basic rule is “large with” “and small with” ↓ “”. Normal windows are maximized with “”, and when returning from the maximized state, “↓” (Figure 8). Also, if you use “” when zoomed in, the top half of the screen will be aligned (Figure 9). On the other hand, the normal window is minimized by “↓” (Figure 10). It is better to train and learn with your body a few times than to think in theory. The combination of “←” and “←” is used to capture left and right (Figure 11). This is not as complicated as “” and “”.

Figure 8 Remember all the combinations with the arrow keys. First, set “↑” and “↓”. Press and hold the “Windows” key and press the “” key to maximize the current window. If you press the “Windows” + “↓” keys in that state, it will return to its original state.

Figure 9 When the window is maximized and the “Windows” + “↑” keys are pressed, the window’s organizing function is fired and the screen shifts to the upper half. When you release the “Windows” key, you can select which window will be displayed in the lower half. From the normal state (Fig. 8, left), press “Windows” + “↑” twice for the upper half. Let’s practice several times

Figure 10 Hold the “Windows” key and press the “” key to minimize the current window. Immediately after that press the “Windows” + “↑” keys to return to the original state. Basically, “↑” is large, and “↓” is small. Let’s practice this a few times

Figure 11 Hold the “Windows” key and press the “←” and “←” keys to display the current window exactly on the left or right half of the screen. You can select the window that will be displayed on the other side by releasing the “Windows” key.
