Productivity Tip #4

Got a big or even multiple screens that you have to traverse looking for a folder to click on? Wander no more… While you should be able to do this anywhere in Vista (sigh!) what you need to do is assign a key to a Windows shortcut. First, create a shortcut for the file, folder or program you use often, place a shortcut on your desktop and assign a keyboard combination to it. Now, with a couple of keystrokes you can launch it. It’s simple to set-up:

  1. Add a shortcut to file or folder on your desktop (Right-click, Send to Desktop as shortcut). Right click the new shortcut and click Properties.
  2. In the Properties dialog box, click the Shortcut tab. In the Shortcut key box, enter a Control-Alt key combination or a Control+Shift key combination then click OK. I prefer Control+Shift  – the keys are closer together…
