Keyboard shortcut of the week: Explorer

A short and sweet post today, after so many lengthy ones.

Here is a shortcut that I have mentioned in passing before: to open Windows Explorer (the Windows file browsing software) hold down the Windows key (the one with the Windows logo on it) and press E.

Note: this may not work if you have certain applications open, to remedy this hold down the Windows key and press D then E.

My colleague taught me this shortcut a couple of years ago. I've been using it so often that when I do computer support for my users, I was stuck looking for the "Window" key on some of their laptops. There isn't one!

I've been using the computer for like 7 years now and I didn't knew that! Thanks a lot! Very helpful!

I knew this very long time ago and it's a time saving shortcut

You'd be surprised at the number of people who still don't know about this lol
