Tame your computer – jump to it!

19 Apr

Anybody who ever attended one of my courses (or is an astute reader of my regular tips) knows I absolutely love keyboard shortcuts and I’m always on the lookout for new ones, especially if they are intuitive. Well, thanks to Ramón I can share a new way of jumping to a specific application on your taskbar and flicking through its open windows, if any. (Thanks, Ramón!)

Here’s how:  

1.       Press WIN + the number of the application you want to jump to.

2.       Press WIN + the number again to flick through its open windows.

For example, press WIN+3 if the application you want to jump to is the third icon from the Start button. Press WIN+3 again (and again, and again…) to flick through the open windows of the running application.

By the way, WIN+0 will open the 10th application on the taskbar. And no, there isn’t a way to open the 11th.

And before anybody asks…yes, I do know about WIN+TAB, see Tip number 419 here.
