    Windows 10 Keyboard Shortcuts

    I was playing around with windows 10 and manage to work on some keyboard short cuts
    and couldn't think of where to put them in here, so I chose here..

    You probably already know about Ctrl + C and Ctrl +V (copy and paste)

    Keyboard Shortcuts ----- Action
    Windows key + A - Open Action Center
    Windows key + D - Display and hide the desktop
    Windows key + L - Lock your PC or Switch Accounts
    Windows key + S - Open Search
    Windows key + PrtScn - Take a screenshot and save in Screenshots folder
    Ctrl + Alt +Tab - View open apps
    Windows key + I - Open Settings
    Windows key + Home - Minimize all but the active desktop window

    You forgot a lot, for example most important ones, of the new desktop snap mechanism in Windows 10:

    Windows key + arrow keys (play around a bit with it it's really cool, when you snap a window to a position, the left over space toggles a tab overview of the other windows and you can choose via arrow)

    Windows key + G (record videos of windows/screen)

    Windows key + H (old share menu, very important shortkey, it triggers which window is focused, you can share screenshots that way of desktop/screen to mail/apps)

    Windows key + P (multi monitor / hdmi out)

    and of course a lot of others from Windows 8, like E Explorer, R execute, X start menu extended options, and so on.

    I found Windows key + X to be one of the most useful keyboard shortcut. It grants many powerful options at your fingertip.
