You might think that the Alt+Tab shortcut of swapping between different open Windows is popular. Well, there are a good number of people who don’t know about it and rely on the painstaking process of using a mouse to swap between different open Windows.
If you are one such person, go right ahead and press the Tab key on your keyboard while holding down the Alt key. Once you start using the Alt+Tab shortcut to swap between various Windows, you will begin to wonder how you were even making do without it for all that while.
With the advent of Windows 10, there came even more useful Windows shortcuts aimed at saving your time and energy as it improves your productivity. First it is the Windows key + Tab, which will show all the open Windows in tiles, and using the mouse you can select the Windows you need.
But a shortcut means not using the mouse at all, so the Windows key + Tab shortcut is not ‘all that.’ The next useful Windows shortcut that only about a handful of people knows about is the Alt + Esc shortcut. The keystroke will pop up open Windows within a single program. If you are reading this on your Windows 10 PC browser and have, other Windows open as well in the background. Try pressing Alt + Esc and see how the other Windows behind your browser will magically pop up right in front of your browser.
Lastly, if for some reason your Windows key is not functioning, and you are forced to use the mouse to click on the Start button on your taskbar. You can spare yourself the hustle by pressing Ctrl + Esc keys on your keyboard. You will see the Start Menu pop up as if you had pressed the Windows Key on your keyboard.
