List of the Best Useful Shortcut Keys for Windows 11

We’ve got a list of frequently used shortcut keys in Windows 11. In a short amount of time, the basic procedure of “just pressing a key” is quite effective. Many shortcut buttons are common not just for taskbar and window operations but also for general programs, and once you memorize them, you may use them indefinitely.

Shortcut Keys that have been carefully chosen and can be used

It is simple to click the mouse, but it takes a long time. If you wish to minimize all currently active windows to show the desktop, for example, you can use the mouse to repeatedly click the minimize button at the top right of the window. If it’s a shortcut key, hit the [Windows] + [D] keys instead.

Alternatively, you may dismiss tabs in your web browser by pressing the [Ctrl] + [W] keys instead of clicking the [x] on the tabs repeatedly. Furthermore, the [Ctrl] + [W] keys may be used to close not just browser tabs but also other programs’ windows. Please try using shortcut keys because they are a useful approach once you know them.
