How to open Windows Explorer

So there are several ways to open Windows Explorer (Explorer shown below) and I will give you several methods for easily accessing Windows Explorer to view files on your hard drive.  I prefer the option #1, due to the fact that the less time you take your hands off the keyboard the quicker you can accomplish the task you are sitting at the computer to accomplish.

Methods:

1.  Press Picture of Windows logo key and “E“.

2.  Right mouse click on the Windows logo on bottom left and click “Explore” or “Windows Explorer“.

3.  Open “My Computer.

How to Minimize All Windows Quickly

So maybe you’re at work and need to hide Facebook or maybe you just need to minimize all programs to get to a document on your desktop, there is an easier way to do that.  If you press the Picture of Windows logo key (Windows key) and then press D it will minimize all running programs and show you the desktop.  After all programs are minimized if you press the  Picture of Windows logo key + D again it will restore all applications to their maximized state and you can continue updating your Facebook status without your boss harping on you again….. this time.

Throughout this blog I am going to be sharing some Windows shortcuts that can make your everyday computing easier.  Today I will tell you how to switch back and forth to different applications you have open.

Press and hold the  “Alt” button & then press the  “Tab” buttons and you will see a dialog box pop up with all applications currently running.  You can continue to press the “Tab” key to scroll through to the other applications.
