Tip: Find and Launch Apps Quickly in Vista

Posted: February 13, 2009 in Uncategorized

Don’t click through your Start menu to find all those apps you’ve installed! Simply press the Start key and type the name of the app.

A few cool shortcuts, and I encourage you to try more:

  • Start + "Windows Live" brings up all the Windows Live apps.


  • Start + "Word" brings up Microsoft Word.


If you simply hit the Enter/Return key when the item comes up at the top of the list, it will launch the application. How cool is that? Keyboard jockeys rejoice!
