Quick Route to Windows Explorer

February 18, 2010

Often when I am helping a user solve a problem, I’ll ask the user to open Windows Explorer. It always surprises me that so many users have no idea what I’m talking about. First, Windows Explorer is not the same as Internet Explorer. Maybe you know Windows Explorer as “My Computer” though it is called “Computer” on Windows Vista and doesn’t even appear on the desktop in Windows 7. Yet there is a very simple way to get to Windows Explorer. All you have to do is hold down the Windows key on your keyboard and press the letter E key.

I’m often asked how to get better at CorelDRAW. It is important to study all the different techniques in CorelDRAW. Yet so few users learn even the basics of using Windows, such as knowing how to launch Windows Explorer. So take some time and get to know Windows as it will only help you be more productive in CorelDRAW.

    I ran into another shortcut by accident on Win7 that works for apps pinned to the task bar. The first icon immediately to the right of the start menu icon is WinKey+1, the next icon is WinKey+2, and so on.
