The keyboard command I didn’t know

If I ask you which keyboard command you use the most, what will you say?




These days, I use the 3rd option a lot. Thanks to all those colleagues who keep me on my toes and don’t like me sitting in my place. If you are the kind that does CTRL+ALT+DEL very often, I thought I will save you some time. Try Windows + L. Just two keys and it works 🙂 Wah, why didn’t anyone tell this before? But I know only till that part. What to do to release the lock? I tried Windows + R and it doesn’t work.  Does anyone have any idea?



  1. Nope Idea really!

  2. No other option, you still have to use Ctrl + Atl + Del. My favs are
    Win+D – its nicknamed “The Saver” 😉

  3. Err… Win+L is to lock the account you are logged as. To “release” the lock. just key in the password you set for that account. 😉

  4. Win + R is the shortcut for ‘Run’ command.
    Win + M is the shortcut to minimize all the open windows…on the same lines of Win + D and very useful at times 🙂
