14 new Windows 7 keyboard shortcuts [ Multi Monitor / Display and Taskbar ]

Ashish has already posted a list of keyboard shortcuts in Windows 7, I recently came across another list which has been released lately, it has 14 new Windows 7 shortcuts which is majorly concerned with multi monitor / Display configuration and taskbar.

Here is the list –

Win + Spacebar Aero desktop peek, just like that small rectangle at the right bottom corner next to the time display.

Win + Left Arrow toggle docking to half the screen starting by the left half

Win + Right Arrow toggle docking to half the screen starting by the right half

Win + Shift + Left Arrow move the window one monitor left in a multi-monitor display

Win + Shift + Right Arrow move the window one monitor right in a multi-monitor display

Win + Up Arrow maximize

Win + Down Arrow minimize

Win + Home minimize/maximize all inactive windows

Win + P show presentation mode projector options

Win + G show desktop gadgets

Win + Any number (1, 2, 3, .., 0) open the corresponding taskbar pinned program

Ctrl + Click a pinned taskbar icon to cycle through the program’s open windows (e.g. IE)

Ctrl + Shift + Click a pinned taskbar icon to run a new instance of the program as administrator

Shift + Click a pinned taskbar icon to run a new instance of the program

So, the users who love using keyboard over the mouse, now have another reason to increase their Windows 7 love.
