  1. Hi! I just wanted to share some of the Windows 7 shortcuts that I use a lot. Many of you probably know about them already, but anyways...

    I'm talking about the arrow keys in combination with the Windows key:

    Win+Left: Place current window on left half of screen (repeat to return window to original position).
    Win+Right: Place current window on right half of screen (repeat to return window to original position).
    Win+Up: Maximize current window.
    Win+Down: Maximized windows are restored, restored windows are minimized.

    And if you have dual monitors, these can come in handy (I just read about them myself :) )
    Win+Shift+Left: Move current window to left monitor.
    Win+Shift+Right: Move current window to right monitor.
