3 Windows Key Shortcuts to Make your Life Easier

The Windows logo key is a useful and even essential key on your keyboard. There are multiple shortcuts this key can be used for to make you more efficient and speed up your work.

Here are three you may find useful in your daily activities:

 

Clipboard

This little-known – and incredibly useful – shortcut allows you to get to your clipboard history: press Windows logo key  + V. You can also paste and pin frequently used items by choosing an individual item from your clipboard menu.

To share your clipboard items across your Windows 10 devices, select Start  > Settings  > System Clipboard. Choose Automatically sync text that I copy under Sync across devices. The sync feature is tied to your Microsoft account, or your work account, so remember to use the same login information on all your devices.
