Windows Taskbar Shortcuts

The icons pinned to your taskbar in Windows 10 aren’t only there for decoration or clicking.

There is actually another useful feature they unlock: keyboard shortcuts. Each program you’ve pinned corresponds with a number. So the first icon is 1, the second icon is 2, and so on…

The keyboard shortcut uses these numbers along with the Windows key to open these programs without you having to select them with your mouse. So if your first pinned program on your taskbar happens to be Microsoft Word, you can use Win + 1 to open up Word. Win + 2 opens up the second program, and so on.
