Digging your way back down to the Desktop

Sometimes when I’ve got 5-6 applications open, I discover that I need to find the desktop again. Usually because I saved a file there that I shouldn’t have. So I spend 10 seconds or so clicking the minimize icon on everything I have open until I get to the desktop again.

There’s an easier way, and that’s today’s topic…

WinKey-M will minimize all the applications you have open and bring you back to your desktop. In Windows Vista and newer, you can also click the very bottom-right corner of the taskbar to do the same trick. Or, running Windows 8? Try out WinKey-D.

windows-m or windows-d

Note: The WinKey is the key between the the Ctrl and Alt keys on most PC keyboards.

Hope this helps!

Happy Wednesday!
