Keyboard Shortcut:Open Start Menu

Like all of you, we here at CSI have too much to do and too little time to do it. That means finding timesaving techniques to increase our efficiency.

 Here are a few keyboard shortcuts we recommend to increase your efficiency and decrease the time spent in typing out reports, emails, editing, project scopes, and keyboarding in general. This is achieved through the use of built in keystroke combinations, allowing the user to avoid having to use a mouse to navigate to the needed function buttons.

One of the most basic and useful shortcuts we use is “Open Start Menu”.  You can use this at any time but may find the greatest use when you are searching for a specific program or document. Here is the shortcut:

Simply push the “Windows” key one time and the Start Menu should pop up.

This is located in the lower left side of your keyboard, bottom row, 2nd key. It is adjacent to the Control key (Ctrl).

You can now quickly access, for example, recently closed documents from this menu by pushing down on the “D” key one time. This opens “My Recent Documents”.

New tips next week…until next then have a great week!
