Windows 7 – Hotkey Keyboard Shortcuts

The HotKey shortcuts make it faster and easier to navigate through the applications and functions.
Windows 7 has some new handy hotkeys including the following:

  1. Win+Home: Clear all but the active window
  2. Win+Space: All windows become transparent so you can see through to the desktop
  3. Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window
  4. Win+Down arrow: Minimize the active window or restore the window if it’s maximized
  5. Win+Left/Right arrows: Dock the active window to each side of the monitor
  6. Win+Shift+Left/Right arrows: If you’ve got dual monitors, this will move the active window to the adjacent monitor
  7. Win+T: Shift focus to and scroll through items on the taskbar
  8. Win+P: Adjust presentation settings for your display
  9. Win+(+/-): Zoom in/out
  10. Shift+Click a taskbar item: Open a new instance of that particular application
