8 Useful Hotkeys and Features for Windows 8.1

via Microsoft TechNet

By introducing an OS that melds the traditional desktop computing experience with a mobile UI experience, Microsoft has signaled a transformational change in regards to daily computing with Windows 8.1.

While the traditional keystrokes such as CTRL + P (to print an activated document or image) still exist, I became enthusiastic around the new set of shortcuts which improved my day-to-day experience using Windows 8.1.  The shortcuts and hotkeys that I discovered allow me to do more in less steps, thus freeing up my time, and in some cases memory and processor cycles, to simply do more.

These hotkeys and features are meant to save you time when performing tasks within Windows 8.1. The hope is that you'll share these tips with your colleagues & friends and possibly create your own list to share with us!

To help answer Canadian IT Pros questions about Windows 8.1, Pierre Roman and I will be traveling across Canada to host CANITPRO.NET’s first ever Windows 8.1: Ask Us Anything Tour.  These in-person events will provide live demos and a chance to directly answer your questions around Windows 8.1. 

This is your best chance to ask us any question you may have regarding your future Windows 8.1 deployment. Click here for a listing of Canadian tour dates.

As always, we at CANITPRO.NET are also eager to address the needs of the Canadian IT community in regards to all Microsoft IT professional offerings. Microsoft Virtual Academy is one of the many great resources provided by Microsoft to learn more about the useful features Windows 8.1 has to offer. We also regularly conduct conversations within one of the many social media #CANITPRO venues and always accept feedback via email directly at
