Last blog entry was on Function and CTRL keys Window shortcuts. Now it's time for ALT and SHIFT shortcuts.
A few terms I'll use include:
Active Window: Your current Window. Say you have a bunch of File Explorer Windows open - the active one is the one you last clicked on.
Window: File Explorer.
Program: Examples include Microsoft Word, Excel, Internet Explorer, and Solitaire.
Item: Examples include a folder, a shortcut, a file.
Alt KEY SHORTCUTS
Alt + Tab: Switch between your open programs and windows.
Alt + F4: Close currently active windows/ program.
Alt + Esc: Go through open Windows/ Programs by order in which they were opened.
Alt + Enter: Display properties of selected item.
Alt + Spacebar: Open shortcut menu for currently active Window.
SHIFT KEY SHORTCUTS
