System Properties

posted in: Shortcut of the Week | 0

Pressing Windows + Pause opens a System Properties dialogue box with all the main spec information about your PC. Useful for checking how much RAM there is or the power of your processor.
The Pause key is usually located towards the top right of the keyboard. It is along the top row after the function keys, usually the second key after F12. It was used with DOS systems in the past to pause the current process, and it can still be used with the command prompt.
