The Windows logo key, located in the bottom row of most computer keyboards is a little-used treasure. Don''t ignore it. It is the shortcut anchor for the following commands:

Windows: Display the Start menu
Windows + D: Minimize or restore all windows
Windows + E: Display Windows Explorer
Windows + F: Display Search for files
Windows + Ctrl + F: Display Search for computer
Windows + F1: Display Help and Support Center
Windows + R: Display Run dialog box
Windows + break: Display System Properties dialog box
Windows + shift + M: Restores all previously open windows to how they were before.
Windows + L: Lock the workstation
Windows + M: Minimize all windows (Same as Windows + D)
Windows + U: Open Utility Manager
Windows + Q: Quick switching of users (PowerToys only)
Windows + Q: Hold Windows Key, then tap Q to scroll through the different users on your PC


I thought many don't know about it :)
