There are many keyboard shortcuts that we use every day on Windows. However, there are so many that we ultimately know very few of them. During our wanderings on the Internet, we discovered a new one, easily memorable and very useful.

Windows key + number

The shortcut in question allows you to launch applications pinned to the taskbar and is therefore compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 11. Thus, by performing the Windows key + number combination, you will launch the applications in their order after the search field. If you do Windows+1 and you haven't changed the icon arrangement, this will launch File Explorer; performing the shortcut again minimizes the associated application.
