Essential windows keyboard shortcuts for developers

To be efficient, I try to be least dependent on laptop track-pad . The below set of shortcuts helps to do so for many developers and me alike.

Win = Windows logo key  windows-key-150x150

  Win + E   Launch Windows Explorer
  Ctrl + Home   Move to Top of a document
  Ctrl + End   Move to End of a document
  Ctrl + O   Open a document
  Alt + Tab   Switch between open windows
  Win + Tab   Switch between open windows
  Win + D   Show the desktop or minimize all windows
  Win + Down Arrow Key   Minimize the current window
  Win + Up Arrow Key   Maximize the current window
  Win + Left or Right Arrow Key   Snap to Left or Right of Monitor
(Useful for quick compare and contrast, works for multi monitor too)

* Not mentioning the most famous “Ctrl + Key” family
