Many folks at home are unaware of keyboard shortcuts. There are many shortcuts for many applications. Today, I want to tell you about the Windows Logo Key (for Windows 10) and provide a list of keyboard shortcuts that you can use in combination with the Windows Logo Key. If you press the Windows Logo Key, which is located on the bottom left side of the keyboard between the “CTRL” key and the “ALT” key, the “Start Menu” will open and close. If you press the “Windows Logo Key” in combination with other keys, as reflected on the list below, you can quickly open (and close) various components of Windows without having to navigate menus.

Found Clavier to be quite interesting and possibly very useful in creating shortcuts to launch specific programs or to automatically write text. For example you could create a keyboard shortcut to launch that special program you use frequently OR to insert your email address instead of having to type it out. Clavier is available as a full install or portable app and will work with the latest versions of Windows.

Did you know that there are built in keyboard shortcuts that you can use to shutdown, sleep, restart or logoff your Windows computer? Well, there are, and they are good to remember in the event the mouse becomes unresponsive. The keyboard shortcuts differ between Windows XP and Windows Vista/Windows 7; however, the initial key press for all of these shortcuts commands are dependent on the Windows key (which is located to the left of the spacebar that displays the Windows Logo on the key).
For Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN – press the WINDOWS KEY and the letter “U” twice
RESTART – press the WINDOWS KEY, then the letter “U” once and then the letter “R” once
LOGOFF – press the WINDOWS KEY and the letter “L” twice
SLEEP – press the WINDOWS KEY and the letter “U” once and the letter “S” once
For Windows Vista/Windows 7:
SHUTDOWN – press the WINDOWS KEY, then press the RIGHT ARROW key three times and the letter “U” to shut down
RESTART – press the WINDOWS KEY, then press the RIGHT ARROW key three times and the letter “R”
LOGOFF – press the WINDOWS KEY then press the RIGHT ARROW key three times and the letter “L”
SLEEP – press the WINDOWS KEY, then press the RIGHT ARROW key three times and the letter “S”
