Start Programs Faster!
and clean up your Desktop at the same time!
Accessing icons on the Windows Desktop is often time-consuming and troublesome because it means minimizing all the programs you're currently using. This is unnecessary!
Here are four different ways to start programs faster and easier:
-> Add them to the first level of the Start Menu. For programs located under Start | Programs (or deeper) right-click them and choose: "Pin to Start menu".
-> Drag icons from your Desktop to the Start menu by droping them on the Start button. Because the Start menu is always available, these shortcuts are now much more accessible, even via keyboard!
-> Better yet, for oft-used programs - drag & drop shortcuts to the Quick Launch Bar. These shortcuts require only a single click!
-> My personal favorite: Assign a keyboard shortcut to start a program.
1. Right-click its icon on the Desktop or Start menu.
2. Choose Properties.
3. Press Tab twice to navigate to the Shortcut Key field.
4. Type a key (like "p" for Paint) and click OK or press Enter.
(Now Paint starts by pressing Ctrl+Alt+P.)
Other key combinations can be accessed too. Experiment with different letters by holding down Ctrl / Shift / Alt keys in different combination or individually.
