Hotkeys make our life easier. In Windows, there are thousands of hotkeys you can use to get anywhere faster. Windows 10 also released numerous hotkeys that weren't present in previous versions of Windows like Windows 7/8 / 8.1, etc. Below are the keyboard shortcuts you need to know if you are using Windows 10.

Windows 10 hotkey list

Windows key + q


Pressing Windows + Q immediately takes you to the search box. If cortana is installed, it will take you to search for cortana; otherwise it will take you to normal search. You can start the search immediately after pressing the Windows key + q while the cursor is highlighted in the search bar.


Windows key + i

Pressing Windows key + i Quickly takes you to the Windows 10 Settings application. The Settings application is like a mini control panel of settings other than the settings accessed in previous versions of Windows.

Windows + E: Open File Explorer.

Windows key + g

By pressing the Windows key + g, you will access the game bar, where you can start recording the game screen.

Shortcuts on the virtual desktop

Virtual desktops are a new innovation in Windows 10. It's for the kind of multitasker who tries to open so many browsers and applications at once and mess them up (a lifesaver for someone like me). In this case, they can switch to a new virtual desktop and start a new set of things all over again. Going back to the previous virtual desktop, you will find all your applications, browsers, and URLs as they are.
