[Windows Tip] Quick launch shortcut keys

Today, I discovered that on Windows Vista/7 you can select an application in quick launch bar by using the combination of Window key plus number. Suppose for the first icon (here command prompt), you can do Win key + 1, for next Win+2 and so on. This shortcut is very helpful and productive on netbooks and laptops which are compact in terms of ergonomics.
I have not checked it on XP machine whether it is working there or not. Please comment your experience on XP for the same command.
Keep on visiting this blog for such tips and random articles on technology. Thanks for your time and I hope it will be helpful in someways for you.


  1. These shortcuts working on Win 7 beta version also...we rarely use external mouse on laptop so at that time these shortcuts are very helpful..


I love feedback, please comment.
