Find the word "secret".... anywhere in the post.  Go for it, take a look.  Post your link, subtract the bitchy comment, and you're good to go.

It's ironic that your comment is the bitchy one.

Use Windows key + Tab for "If you’ve got multiple windows open within a given app, this handy shortcut will let you quickly switch between them, so you don’t have to waste time clicking around in search of the right window."

IMO Windows-D is better than Windows M since pressing it again brings all the Windows back. It does almost the same thing.

Alt+F6 doesn't work for me under Win7.  How about you guys?

Try Windows+Tab. Pretty interesting, but I don't use it too often.

Heh, the picture for #7 is a Linux computer running KDE (3?) with two terminals open, the left one running top.

I use most of these shortcut keys everyday. Now I can send this article to friends and family and they can see how great shortcut keys are ^_^

That program is called bins. It was featured here a while ago, I think. Anyway, it's currently in open beta here: http://www.oneupindustries.com/Bins/. I don't use it much myself, but it does work well if you have a cluttered taskbar.

Thank you so very much for providing the link. I'm not going to lose another second without trying it out. I'm going to put all my desktop shortcuts on the taskbar.

I dont remember seeing that program on here before, and i stalk this website every single day.

I think everyone knows I practically and literally live on this website and I don't remember this bad ass app being mentioned before. I guess I'm losing my touch if I missed something.
