The Basic Once:-

Select All

This command lets you highlight all the text in a document or select all the files in a folder. Hitting Ctrl+A can save you time you’d otherwise spend clicking and dragging your mouse.


No matter what program you’re running, Ctrl+Z will roll back your last action. Whether you’ve just overwritten an entire paragraph in Microsoft Word or deleted a file you didn’t mean to, this one is an absolute lifesaver.


No matter what program you’re running, Ctrl+X will take you Undid action forward.


Another shortcut that works just about everywhere, Ctrl+W will close down whatever you’re viewing. Shut that File Explorer window, browser tab, or open image file without bothering to hone in on the close button.

Switch apps

This one of the classic Windows shortcuts, and it can be hugely useful when you’re running multiple applications. Just press Alt+Tab and you’ll be able to quickly flick through all your open windows.

Close apps

Alt+F4 shuts down active apps so you can skip the process of hunting down their on-screen menus. Don’t worry about losing unsaved work with this command—it will prompt you to save your documents before closing them.

Now Some Navigation Shortcuts:-

Hide or Show the desktop

This keyboard combo minimizes all your open windows, bringing your home screen into view. If you store rows and rows of files and shortcuts on your desktop, Win+D will let you access them in in moments.

Spilt or snap Window

Snapping a window simply opens it on one side of the screen (left or right, depending on which arrow you hit). This allows you to compare two windows side-by-side and keeps your workspace organized.

Open the Task view

Like Alt+Tab, this shortcut lets you switch apps, but it does so by opening an updated Windows application switcher. The latest version shows thumbnails of all your open programs on the screen.

Move forward through options/Tabs

When you open a dialog box, these commands move you forward (Tab) which will save you a click. If you’re dealing with a dialog box that has multiple tabs, hit Ctrl+Tab to navigate through them.

Move Backward through Options / Tab

When you open a dialog box, these commands move you backwards (Shift+Tab) which will save you a click. If you’re dealing with a dialog box that has multiple tabs, hit Ctrl+Shift+Tab to navigate through them.

Start Menu Shortcut

If you’re using a keyboard that doesn’t have a Windows key, this shortcut will open the Start menu. Otherwise, a quick tap of the Windows key will do the same thing. From there, you can stay on the keyboard and navigate the Start menu with the cursor keys, Tab, and Shift+Tab.

Maximize or minimize

Using WIN+UP or Down Arrow you will be able to maximize or minimize and window or app you want

Advance Shortcuts

Rename File/Folders

Simply select a file and hit F2 to give it a new name. This command also lets you edit text in other programs—tap F2 in Microsoft Excel, for example, and you’ll be able to edit the contents of the cell you’re in.


This key will refresh a page—a good trick when you’re using File Explorer or your web browser. After the refresh, you’ll see the latest version of the page you’re viewing.

Lock your computer

Win+L locks the machine and returns you to the login screen, so any snoops will need your user account password to regain access. Keep your computer safe from any prying eyes by using this keyboard combo right before you step away.

Open Settings

Win+I Any time you want to configure the way Windows works, hit this keyboard shortcut to bring up the Settings dialog. Alternatively, use Win+A to open up the Action Center panel, which shows notifications and provides quick access to certain settings.


Win+S The Windows taskbar has a handy search box that lets you quiz Cortana or sift through your applications and saved files. Jump straight to it with this keyboard shortcut, then type in your search terms.

Save a screenshot

Win+PrtScn grabs the whole screen and saves it as a PNG file in a Screenshots folder inside your Pictures folder. At the same time, Windows will also copy the image to the clipboard. If you don’t want to snap the whole screen, the Alt+PrtScn combination will take a screenshot of just the active window, but it will only copy this image to the clipboard, so you won’t get a saved file.

Task Manager

This shortcut will call up the Task Manager, no matter what application you’re using. Ctrl+Shift+Esc


Win+C whenever you want to talk to the digital assistant. You can do this instead of, or in addition to, saying, “Hey Cortana.”

Virtual desktop

Win+Ctrl+D Virtual desktops create secondary screens where you can stash some of your open applications and windows, giving you extra workspace. This shortcut lets you create one. Once you have, click the Task View button to the right of the taskbar search box to switch from one desktop to another. 

Hidden Menu

WIn+X Windows has a hidden Start menu, called the Quick Link menu, that allows you to access all the key areas of the system.
