In this blog post, I’d like to share a list of Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts with you.
Windows 10 has been launched and it is running on over 70 million devices as when the post is being written. This post lists many new keyboard shortcuts that have been included in Windows 10 and also the ones that pre-exist on Windows devices.
Here’s my list of Windows 10 shortcuts, and – in addition – some of my favorite “old but gold” shortcuts known from previous versions of Windows:
