Don’t click through your Start menu to find all those apps you’ve installed! Simply press the Start key and type the name of the app.
A few cool shortcuts, and I encourage you to try more:
- Start + "Windows Live" brings up all the Windows Live apps.
- Start + "Word" brings up Microsoft Word.
If you simply hit the Enter/Return key when the item comes up at the top of the list, it will launch the application. How cool is that? Keyboard jockeys rejoice!
