This isn’t Lightroom or Photoshop-related, but since I’m in charge here, I can get away with it!
I have really been enjoying Windows 7. I had no plans to upgrade to it from XP, but my computer died and I had to replace it — right after W7 was released. It is truly a pleasure to use (too bad, SJ!). I particularly like the new task bar.
Here are a few handy shortcuts that I just came across:
Win+D: Show the desktop
Win+Left/Right arrows: Dock the window to each side of the monitor
Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window
Win+Down arrow: Minimize the window/Restore the window if it’s maximized
Win+Space: All windows are made transparent so you can see the desktop
Win+Home: Minimize all windows but the current window
What I was looking for when I came across these was a way to create a desktop shortcut that puts the system into Sleep mode. (It’s easy to do from the Start menu, but W7 has encouraged me to put as much as I can in the task bar.) Everything I tried from my Google searches puts it into Hibernate mode. If you know the secret, please let me know!
