While this is an oldie but a goodie, not everyone is aware of the delights of using they keys Alt & Tab.
Say you have many different programs running on your PC at the same time. You might have email (plus a number of open messages) running, a Web browser window open (even two different types at once, say Internet Explorer as well as Firefox), a Word document or two and perhaps ITunes playing your favorite song for good measure.
With all of that going action the easy way to move between all those open windows is to hold down the Alt key and start pressing the Tab key.
Each press of the Tab key moves you across to the next open window. When you land on the one you want simply let go of the Alt key.
When you want to swap programs/open window again, just repeat the process. It’s a simple you to keep track of everything you have running and easily juggle different tasks.
If you have Internet Explorer 9 you can now easily pop web links you visit frequently straight onto your Taskbar!
- Call up the website address and then simply drag the icon from the address bar down to the Windows Taskbar.
- When you let go of the mouse it attaches to the Taskbar.
- To remove it, simply right-click on the pinned link and select Unpin this program from taskbar.
