Windows 7 Taskbar Hotkeys

I love hotkeys! In fact, I’m pretty sure that If I could assign one for every Windows 7 action, I definitely would! With that said, here are some quick hotkey combinations I stumbled across for the Windows 7 Taskbar.

Ctrl + Click on a grouped taskbar item
Cycles through the various windows of the group.

Ctrl + Shift Click on a taskbar item
Opens program as an Administrator.

Shift + Click on a taskbar item
Opens another instance of a program. (May not work with everything)

Shift + Right-click on a taskbar item
Show the window menu for the program.


I don’t know about you, but that last hotkey combo is like gold to me! Check ’em out!
