10 awesome Windows key shortcuts

You look at it every day and probably never use it. No, not your treadmill. I'm referring to that Windows button on your computer keyboard that sits in between the ALT and CTRL buttons on the left-hand side of the spacebar.

CNTRL + ENTER after entering a websites name.

for e.g. type in "n4g" in the address bar and then hit "CNTRL + ENTER"

old (i know), but still useful

@1.0 wow thats cool, thanks

@1.1 what happens when you press ctrl + enter is that it automatically puts in www.<what you entered>.com and presses enter for you... so you basically don't need to type "www." and ".com". oh and yeah it could be Internet Explorer "exclusive".

Anyway one I use a whole lot is windows button + e (mentioned in the article)... it opens up windows explorer.
