I found on different websites, various uses of the largely ignored
"Windows" key on our keyboard. Turned out there are quite some
useful shortcuts this key can offer.
I made a list of them and then decided to select the most useful and put them in a video. So, there you have it.
Hope you find it useful.
Spread the word, send this video to other friends and ask them
if they knew these shorcuts. Actually, I had no idea about them until 2 days ago after I discovered a blog post about this key and started to do some research about them.
It's quite a productivity booster, if you ask me.
So, start using them and tell me how you feel about it.
