Go To Desktop

posted in: Shortcut of the Week | 0

You can go to the Desktop at any time by pressing Windows + D.
This will minimise any open applications to the Taskbar at the bottom of the screen, and puts the focus on the Desktop.
You can also press Windows + M to minimise all applications.
The difference is that if you press Windows + D a second time, it will take you back to the open application that you were working on. Whereas Windows + M just minimises.
Focusing on the Desktop is useful because you can access any Desktop items just by pressing the first letter of the item name. Then press Enter to open the item. It can be handy to have shortcuts on the Desktop to frequently used applications and files.
