Get To The Desktop Fast In Windows

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017 by | Filed Under: Computer Terms, Desktop Enhancement, Quick Tips

I don’t know about you, but I take the whole idea of using windows in Windows pretty seriously. Sometimes I’ll actually have four or five programs open.  Minimizing them one at a time is a pain when I need to get back to my desktop in a hurry.

But there’s a super-quick way to minimize all of your open windows.


Just press the Windows key + M. All of your programs will minimize, showing you the desktop. To bring a program back to full size, just click on it on the taskbar.

    quicker way is to hit the vertical bar on the far right of the taskbar (to the right of the notification icon)
