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...;)
