Windows Vista lets you use hotkeys for the first 10Â items in the Quick Launch menu. These hotkeys are assigned automatically, so thereâ€™s no need to do anything other than understand how they work.
For each icon in the Quick launch bar, the hotkey Win + number is assigned. These are assigned from left to right, 1-9 (and 0 for 10).
For instance, in the following screenshot, youâ€™ll see that the first 4 icons are:
- Show Desktop
- Windows Media Player
- Internet Explorer
That wouldÂ mean the automatic hotkeys are assigned like this:
- Win + 1Â Â – Show Desktop:
- Win + 2Â Â – Flip3D:
- Win + 3Â Â – Windows Media Player
- Win + 4Â Â – Internet Explorer
