Useful shortcut keys in Windows 8.1

If you are like me who prefer the older Windows 7 interface, here are some quick tips to get yourself familiarize with the Windows.

  • WINkey+D: to get to the desktop space
  • WINkey+X: to get to the old START button (but not exactly), you can find control panel, programs and features, device manager, Run, command prompts, network connections, file manager, search, task manager etc. Probably the most useful shortcut.
  • WINkey+C: to bring out the right panel quick access shortcuts (Search, Settings, Share, Start, Device)

Boot to Desktop

In order to activate this boot to desktop feature, simply right click on the taskbar and then choose Properties and then Navigation. And finally, on your Start screen, check the option that says “Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in”.
