Ah, I’ve been using XP ever since it came out, and everyone knows it’s not the best OS (speed-wise). Moving your mouse sometimes can make your computer go crashie, but I’ve noticed that using a keyboard shortcut always works! :-)

Note: They’re randomly listed. They work with Vista as well!

  1. Alt + Tab
    Arguably, the most popular shortcut of all, you can use it to navigate through open windows. Very useful!
  2. Windows Key + D
    Wanna bring all your windows down, simple, hit the Windows Key (the one that opens the Start menu) and D. Down they go!
  3. Ctrl+F5
    Very useful Indeed, instead of digging through your browser’s settings to clear your cache, try this for a change!
  4. Shift + Alt
    Wanna change to another typing language? Use this shortcut, save you the trouble of going to the language bar.
  5. Alt + F4
    Close the current open window. Doesn’t get any simpler than that.
  6. And now for the most useful one (after all this is Windows XP :P)


    Frozen? End the process or program that’s freezing the whole OS!
