3. Windows Explorer and Searching > 3.1. The Windows Explorer Interface

The Windows Explorer Interface

You probably spend a lot of time using Windows Explorer, so why not make it work the way that you—rather than Microsoft’s engineers—want it to work? As you’ll see in this section, there are many ways to give Windows Explorer more power and efficiency, including keyboard shortcuts that can save you from mouse-related wrist strain.

Opening Explorer with a Keyboard Shortcut

Tired of clicking menus to get to Windows Explorer? Open it the fast way: Press the Windows key+E and Windows Explorer opens with just a flick of two fingers.

Note

The Windows key (the key with the Windows logo on it) resides in different places on different keyboards. On desktop computers, it often sits between the Ctrl and Alt keys. On a laptop, it could be almost anywhere.
