You want to access one of the five Explorer windows you have open, but there are so many other programs running that Alt+Tab makes it hard to pick out what you need. The solution? Hold down the Ctrl key while you click on the Explorer icon. Windows 7 will then cycle through the Explorer windows only, a much quicker way to locate the right one. And of course this works with any application that has multiple windows open.

That's one of the keyboard shortcuts listed here, http://forums.pcpits...ortcuts-for-cp/

I updated it last week to reflect the Alt + F4 shutdown option.

Unfortunately LA8490, your tip is for Windows 8 while Corleone007's tip is for Windows 7...;)

Daniel 5:23 Instead, you have set yourself up against the Lord of heaven. --- You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or understand. But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways.
