We all want more desktop real estate. We are using more and more applications on our computers, and having to constantly move them around to access the ones you want quickly becomes a tedious process, or even worse, having to minimize and maximize windows as we need them. If you have the physical desk space, purchasing a second monitor is a great idea and may be ideal if you regularly glance over at the second monitor, but don’t always need to click or use those particular programs, or simply prefer them to virtual desktops. It really comes down to personal preference.

Many keyboard shortcuts come built into Windows. Some are gimicky, like the “Aero” view in Windows 7 that shows a real-time view of open programs and allows you to quickly flip between them (Alt+Tab). Other key combinations are more practical, allowing you to quickly “lock” your computer from unwanted access, or easily zoom in for a better view of a webpage.
