windowskey00Pressing “Windows Key + R” opens the Windows “Run” dialog box. From here, type the name of any program you want to open. For example, the filename for Windows Word is winword.exe. In the Run dialog box, you simply type winword. This saves time when your hands are already on the keyboard. Here’s what to type for programs you might use:

  • Winword – for Microsoft Word
  • Excel – for Microsoft Excel
  • Powerpnt – for Microsoft Powerpoint
  • Onenote – for Microsoft OneNote
  • Outlook – for Microsoft Outlook
  • Mspub – for Microsoft Publisher
  • Indesign – for Adobe InDesign
  • Photoshop – for Adobe Photoshop
  • Acrobat – for Adobe Acrobat Pro

Is it reasonable for you to memorize all these codes? Absolutely not. But it is reasonable to learn the two or three that you use regularly. You will save seconds every time you open the program. That just might get you home a few minutes earlier! And that’s always a good thing.
