Lifehacker's list of nifty Windows 7 keyboard shortcuts

I keep referring to this, so I thought I'd put it here for my use, and for the user of others!


Windows 7 boasts a lot of great new shortcuts, but I'm focusing on several of my favorites. Check out the video above for a closer look. For those of you who prefer text to video, here are all of the shortcuts I highlighted:

* Win+Home: Clear all but the active window

* Win+Space: All windows become transparent so you can see through to the desktop

* Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window

* Win+Down arrow: Minimize the window/Restore the window if it's maximized

* Win+Left/Right arrows: Dock the window to each side of the monitor (If you've got dual monitors, adding Shift to the mix (e.g., Win+Shift+Right arrow) will move the window to the adjacent monitor.)

* Win+T: Focus and scroll through items on the taskbar.

* Win+P: Adjust presentation settings for your display

* Win+(+/-): Zoom in/out

* Shift+Click a taskbar item: Open a new instance of that application
