3) Shortcuts in Windows

WIN + D can be used as a toggle to minimize and maximize all windows? But what if you just want to have a quick peek at something on your desktop? Check out the preview shortcut!

Here’s how:

  1. Press and hold down the WIN key (the one next to your spacebar) and press the spacebar.
  2. Release the WIN key to return to your last used window.
