Preferred Solution: E-Book : Complete list of Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello to All;
   I have just discovered PotPlayer! Over the years I've tried most of the free media players (MPC, GOM, foobar, zoom, VideoLAN, Winamp, ... ) an I'm excited to have found PotPlayer. It loads quickly and has played all the media file types that I've tried so far. It has many functions and controls, and that's the question I hope someone can help me with.
   I've searched for a list of keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys) but have not found a comprehensive list of keyboard keys. I have found partial lists, mostly older lists that refer to KMplayer or earlier PotPlayer versions, but nothing that covers the many functions that PotPlayer has predefined. Does anyone have a link to, or a list of PotPlayer keyboard shortcuts? Is there a way to have PotPlayer save a list of the assigned hotkeys?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
Harry B.
P.S. I should add, if anyone has a link to an English language PotPlayer user file, help file, or manual, please pass that along. I have searched but have not found much. I don't understand why there isn't more translated documentation available - PotPlayer is a nice media player.

machine: Dell XPS15 2014 with Windows 8.1
Windows 8 seems to have keyboard shortcuts that conflict with some software shortcuts.
I found this out when, using MS-Word, I hit the Ctrl + F1 shortcut, which toggles the ribbon, up to Windows 7.
Thanks to Windows 8, what this shortcut does is display a graphical representation of how bright the screen is.
Today, working with Adobe Indesign, I tried to use a shortcut specific to that software that allows one to create multiple instances of the same graphic - Alt + drag + right arrow key. What I got instead was my screen getting rotated 90 degrees.
This is a VERY serious issue, as clearly one can expect a raft of such Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts to interfere with professional workflow - just how many are there?
Can someone please confirm whether or not Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts can be disabled, and if yes, how.
Many thanks

I see reports of various Windows updates from 2013 which are causing various issues with CONSUMER PCs using Windows 7 Home Premium....

Noel:

Could you please post a complete list of the troublesome updates from 2013 which MS and you believe to be causing issues with our PCs? I've seen various articles and mentions of individual updates which are causing problems but no comprehensive complete listing from 2013 which is complete up until August

Thanks.

A:@NoelDP- COMPLETE LIST of PROBLEM Windows Updates from 2013.

Generally, all updates can cause problems with a limited number of machines - but there have been a number of updates this year which have been recalled by MS because they affected too many.
This month, the problem seems to mostly surround KB2859537 - at least for home users - and a batch of updates for Server OS's (affecting AD architectures)
All older updates that were recalled have been updated and re-issued.

Far more common in these forums is the problem of machines with underlying file or registry problems which don't come to light until Updates fail for one reason or another.

Win+Home: Clear all but the active window
Win+Space: All windows become transparent so you can see through to the desktop
Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window
Win+Down arrow: Minimize the window/Restore the window if it's maximized
Win+Left/Right arrows: Dock the window to each side of the monitor (If you've got dual monitors, adding Shift to the mix (e.g., Win+Shift+Right arrow) will move the window to the adjacent monitor.)
Win+T: Focus and scroll through items on the taskbar.
Win+P: Adjust presentation settings for your display
Win+(+/-): Zoom in/out
Shift+Click a taskbar item: Open a new instance of that application


Make windows transparent: Win + Space
This is the keyboard equivalent of mousing over the transparency tool in the right corner of the System Tray — great for those times when you need to something on the desktop (like a gadget) but don’t want to minimize all your windows. After tapping Win-Space, your windows will stay see-through until you let go of the Windows key.
Quick-launch taskbar apps: Win + (1-9)
As you know, Windows 7 makes it a snap to “pin” frequently used programs to the taskbar. But did you also know that these programs are automatically assigned a number and corresponding Windows-key shortcut? Just press Windows-1 to launch the first pinned program (the one closest to the Start button), Windows-2 to launch the next one, and so on. Fastest app-launching known to man!

I work in Photoshop and use keyboard shortcuts a lot. However, since changing to Windows 8, if the Photoshop keyboard shortcut is the same as a Windows 8 shortcut, it will not work in Photoshop. The keyboard shortcut does what Windows 8 defines. For instance, when pressing CTRL + ALT + down arrow, it flips my screen instead of stretching my object in Photoshop, as desired.

How can I disable and/or change the keyboard shortcuts for Windows 8 to eliminate this problem?

PS - I've tried to follow the instructions here in this link: Windows Key Shortcuts - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Help Forums, but I guess it is just over my head. I can't find the Local Group Policy Editor. Is there possibly another way to do this?

Thanks!

A:How do I disable Windows 8 Keyboard Shortcuts

The tutorial in the link is only for enabling or disabling hotkey combinations involving the Windows Key. Example Winkey and e opens the file explorer. It would not apply to control alt down.

You could try running PS in Compatibility Mode for Windows 7 but I'm not sure that would have any effect on the hotkeys, or "shortcuts" as MS calls them.

Keyboard shortcuts are always central to any Windows power user and it?s incredible how much more productive and efficient you can become once you?ve got a good handle on them. After using keyboard shortcuts for a while they become second nature to you and you?ll find yourself using them without realizing it.

With Windows 8, I think that keyboard shortcuts have become more important than ever because of the new Metro UI. The Metro UI as most of you should know by now is based primarily around touch. And while Microsoft have worked hard to make it friendly for users without desktops, there?s still a bit of a learning curve with it. Microsoft have added plenty of new keyboard shortcuts to Windows 8 to try and make it easier to navigate around the Metro UI.

Switch to recent window: ALT + TAB (unchanged) ? Hold shows new Task view window view, let go and switches to app.

Close current virtual desktop: WIN + CTRL + F4

Hello,

This is my first post here.
Question is: How can I define keyboard shortcuts for different open application windows. This is something I do in Linux and it helps a lot when I have many windows open.
Example: I have Internet explorer open, I give it shortcut Ctrl+Shift+A
Then for example VLC player is open, I give it a Ctrl+shift+B

Then I can just press these keys and go from one window to another. This makes a lot of sense when I have 40 windows open. Pressing Alt+tab is not as efficient as this.

Thanks,
Sep

A:Defining keyboard shortcuts for different open application windows

[Alt]+[TAB] might not be as effective with that many windows open, but I prefer [Win]+[TAB] as you then get a visual.

Would you method work if for example there were 3 MS word windows, 4 Firefox windows, a regedit window, a res hacker window and 8 windows explorer windows? How would it know which of the 4 firefox windows you wanted?

This is weird, occasionally as I open up firefox and go to enter text into any field I notice that I am unable to type. Instead what happens is if I hit a key such as F which is linked to a windows shortcut for files, the files search menu pops up even though i never pressed the windows key at any time. This problem isn't just limited to firefox, once it is started I have a very hard time getting it to being able to type normally. So if there is no shortcut linked to that key, there is no input otherwise i get the shortcuts (H - share, Q - search, etc). Restarting doesn't always work, sometimes all it takes is excessive clicking of a search bar, other times just closing an internet broswer. Pressing the windows key does nothing, and I haven't been able to find a concrete fix for the issue. Is there a way to fix and or avoid this completely?

A:Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts locked - unable to type

Here are some things to check..

1) Reset Firefox - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...-most-problems

2) Open Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Change input methods

**Verify you are using the correct keyboard layout.

3) It is possible to completely disable Windows shortcuts by adding a registry value.

To disable the Windows logo key:

a) Open Regedit

b) navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout

c) Name: "Scancode Map"

Windows 10
Start - Settings - Ease of Access - Keyboard

Everything here is off. If i turn on the On-Screen Keyboard no keys are Highlighted (indicating they are depressed/stuck )
When I use the hard keyboard and sometimes even the onscreen keyboard its as if either Ctrl, Alt Win or something are pressed down as it just types shortcuts.
EG:

-H- typed into chrome browser address bar via onscreen keyboard types as normal
-H- typed into chrome browser address bar via hard keyboard brings up -Chrome://history- But now also on the onscreen keyboard Ctrl is Highlighted.
I click on the onscreen keyboard to deactivate the now highlighted Ctrl button and try again. Now things are different, as now both the onscreen keyboard and the hard keyboard both bring up ?Chrome://history- when -H- is typed ( Shift is not depressed )

This seems to randomly cycle one min onscreen keyboard works fine, next the keyboard works fine or they either work or none of the work rendering the computer useless.

I cant help feel it?s a software issue but im no pro and I don?t have an additional external keyboard to try but as the onscreen and hard keyboard work ok for a while sometimes I assume something is up and that?s what brought me here.

Hopefully this is clear enough to be understood and to help others who may have the same issue.

Thank you so much for your time.

As I wrote in the title, my Shift and Alt keys stopped working for keyboard shortcuts. However, the Shift key still works when capitalizing letters.

I've been dealing with this problem off/on for the past two weeks and haven't been able to figure it out. I've gone into Ease of Access features and turned on/off all of the available options (Mouse Keys, Sticky Keys, Toggle Keys, Filter Keys). I've pressed Shift for 8 seconds, and pressed it 5 times, and still haven't been able to correct it.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Possibly helpful additional information:
I've got a Spanish/Latin American keyboard layout installed in addition to the US English keyboard layout. I toggle back and forth with Left Alt + Shift (which is how I noticed my Shift key stopped working).
I play a game whose controls rely on a lot of Shift key pressing and holding.

I did not do a proper shut down,and the battery died. Now it either completes the syst. repair and the screen goes a colourful "white noise" in movent, simply black screen, jams at the startup repair window and even once had 3 sets of characters, not letters, vertically on the left side of the screen. It will not start up. Can I fixthis?

Hi everyone,

I accidentally messed up my keyboard settings in Excel 2010--I didn't notice the book sitting on the keyboard while working on something else on my desk--and can't figure out how to restore all of them to defaults in a blanket action. I fixed them one-by-one, but I can't figure out how to fix one last problem: I keep having the keytips pop up when the '/' key (no ALT or CTRL) is pressed. It doesn't matter if the slash is in the QWERTY or the 10-key. The keytips still pop up.

Can someone help me figure out how to return the normal function?

Thanks,
Kurt

I'm on W10 pro and some program hijacked the print screen button which I had assigned to a screen capturing program(snagit) to. I'm unable to figure out which program took over the shortcut. How do I get it assigned back to Snagit?

Thanks in advance for any help you are able to provide.

I have a setup of Ctrl+1,2,3,4,5 shortcuts for switching keyboard layouts on Windows 8.1.
Once I boot up my laptop they work just fine and the layouts shortcuts setup window looks like this if I open it:

However now when I close my laptop, putting it into sleep mode, and then open it again, the keyboard shortcuts stop working and if I open the aforementioned setup window, it also looks as if I have none configured:

To get my shortcuts back after sleep mode I have either to reboot the laptop, or assign the shortcuts again manually.

This is a problem I've experienced before on this same machine (Lenovo Yoga 13) with Windows 8 (before the 8.1 update) and I guess at that time it dissapeared after some editing of the list of layouts I use.

However now I've added some layouts to the list, and then removed some of them and so on and here is what I get again.
Maybe there is some branch of Windows Registry involved with the layouts and keyboard-shortcuts messed up and I could simply remove the registry branch and start with a clean slate?

A:Windows 8.1 is forgetting Ctrl+1,2,3,4,5 shortcuts designated for keyboard layout switching after waking up from sleep mode

I've got help with this issue: https://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/1261058-windows-81-is-forgetting-ctrl12345-shortcuts-designated-for-keyboard-layout-switching-after-wa/
Windows seems to overwrite personal layout controls configuration with defaults on some occasions. Hence, the way to have a "permanent" solution basically appears to be rewriting your HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control
Panel\Input Method\Hot Keys with what you have in your HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control
Panel\Input Method\Hot Keys once you've configured your layout-switch shortcuts correctly.
This is in fact an old legacy bug, apparently from the times of Windows XP: https://superuser.com/questions/327479/ctrl-space-always-toggles-chinese-ime-windows-7
I would love to have it included into the Microsoft's bug tracker, but I don't seem to find my way through connect.microsoft.com.

I use Outlook 2007 for my email needs. I have email addresses in my Contact list and I have email addresses in what I call the Address Book. The Address Book is what I can use when I'm sending an email and I click on the TO: button to find an address. It seems that theses are two completely different lists of email addresses. Am I correct? if so, is there a way to synch to a "common" list?

Thank you!

There used to be one of these in the days of W98 or maybe W95. It was called TrayList or DeskList or something like that. I'm sure one of you uh, ahem, more senior gentlemen, will remember it.

It had a small unobtrusive icon that sat, if I recall correctly, in the systray, the notification area.

When clicked, up popped an alphabetized text list of all the app shortcuts you'd previously added to it. If you had heaps of 'em , there'd be several columns of the things.

Your list might read, say, 'Acronis, Beyond Compare, CamTech.....SevenForums, Word,etc etc. To open a program, you single-clicked a name.

For me, there's never been a quicker, easier way to start apps and software than a quick scan of an alphabetic list to find your target. Sure, clicking a shortcut's icon is pretty quick, and you can do this fast with the handful you're most familiar with. But for the others you use less frequently, it's sometimes a challenge to recall which icon is which.

Anyway, the developer lost interest in his little program and it never worked properly past W98. Or was that XP?...

So, my question is: Does anyone know of something like this? Shucks, it's times like this I wish I knew more about programming. I can't believe this little piece of software could be that hard to write. For someone with a full deck of cards, that is :-)

So, I've been trying to add a few things to the app list in the start menu for a while now. Every site I've gone to says to put the shortcuts in "%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs". I have done that multiple times, checked to make sure the shortcuts were pointed at the correct executable, moved the short cuts up a directory and then back to the Programs folder. I have restarted my machine since then, and I'm not quite sure where I'm going wrong.

Hi everyone,

I am currently trying to figure out how to format Word to make multilevel lists/outlining easier. Currently when I am making a multilevel list and I want to promote an item, I need to press Shift+tab, and to demote an item, just tab. However, on my friend's computer (same software), if she has a list and wants to promote the next line, all she has to do is press Enter 2x; once to get to the next line, once to promote the item. Does anyone know how to configure Word to do this? It ends up being fewer keystrokes and more natural to just hit Enter a few time.

Thanks!

Just got "upgraded" to Win7 from XP at work and have been trying to recreate/replace functionality from the old system. One item I haven't been able to figure out is a panel or window of shortcuts that is always there, just an alt-tab away.

Under XP, I opened the folder containing the shortcuts in explorer, set it to just list the names, and made it as small as possible. I added it to the startup menu and voila -- there's my little list all the time (it's shortcuts to various config files for a terminal pgm to connect to different servers and such.)

So, I tried setting it up in Explorer, but it doesn't remember the settings or location or anything, and nothing else I've tried works. What I want is just a little list of shortcuts so that I can click on the one I want have have it run the program with the appropriate config file -- something like this:

Server 01 -- Test
Server 01 -- Support
Client 01
Client 02
...etc...

Any suggestions on how to accomplish this? Perhaps a gadget? Or some freeware utility? What I don't want is for it to take up a lot of space and I don't really want icons and I'd like to be able to get to it using the keyboard... I'm open to any ideas. Thanks!
