1. Hidden powers and secret time savers

Time is money, or so the saying goes. And even if you’re plunked down in front of your PC for fun or a hobby project, every unnecessary click and hassle you bump into burns away precious seconds of your life.

Nobody wants to waste time endlessly navigating menus. So here is the some useful hidden windows timesaver tricks that can save your time easily just read this article till the end and i am sure you will be able to save your time in office and you can enjoy your saved time.

2. Launch taskbar programs with your keyboard

Many of us- especially users of the Start Menu-less Windows 8—use the Windows task-bar as a quick launch bar, populating it with our day-to-day programs. Opening those programs is as simple as clicking them, but there’s actually a faster way to launch software on your task-bar: Simple keyboard combinations.

Every program to the right of the Start button is assigned its own numerical shortcut, with the first program being “1,” the second being “2,” and so on, all the way to the 10th taskbar shortcut, which gets “0.” Pressing the Windows key, plus the number of the program you want to open, launches it. For example, in the image at left, pressing Win 1 launches the Internet Explorer

3. Copy a file path to the Clipboard

Why would you ever want to copy a file path to the Windows Clipboard? Well, you may just want to tell someone how to browse to a common location for a given application. I, however, use it to mark the spot of a local file I’ve found using Windows Explorer, so it’ll be handy later—to upload photos to Facebook or document attachments to Outlook emails, for instance.

To copy a file path to your Clipboard, hold down the Shift key, right-click the file or folder you want, then select the newly revealed “Copy as Path” option. Now you can paste the info wherever you’d like—including the “File name” portion of Browse dialog boxes, with no extra browsing required.

 

4. More secret right-click options

Secret right-click options revealed by the Shift key don’t end with file paths, though.

The basic Send to tool that appears as an option when you right-click on a file or folder is handy enough indeed, allowing you to move the item quickly to a handful of locations on your PC, add it to a .zip archive, or send it off in an email or fax.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Holding down the Shift key as you right-click a file or folder will add an absolute ton of new folder locations to the basic Send tomenu

5. Tweaking the Send To menu

What’s that, you say? None of the stock Send to options offer the ability to shuffle your files to the locations you commonly use? Force the issue!

First, create shortcuts to the folder locations you’re like to add to the Send To menu by right-clicking them, then selecting Send to Desktop (create shortcut). Once that’s done, open Windows Explorer, then type shell:sendto in the location bar at the top, followed by Enter. You’ll be brought to the location that holds your Send To options; just drag and drop in the shortcuts to the folders you want to add to the tool

6. Add mouse-friendly checkboxes to icons

For every geek who swears by keyboard shortcuts, there are a dozen casual users who rely on their mice. Activating icon checkboxes lets you select multiple files to manage simultaneously, without having to hold down the Ctrl button as you click each one.

…unless you add checkboxes to Windows icons, that is. In Windows 7, type Folder options into the Start Menu’s search bar. Next, open the “View” tab in the window that appears and ensure the “Use check boxes to select items” checkbox is checked. In Windows 8, just open Windows Explorer, open the “View” tab, and check the “Item check boxes” box in the Show/Hide pane.

7. Pin common items to Jump Lists

You can also pin the custom search shortcut to the File Explorer Jump List, causing it to appear when you right-click File Explorer’s taskbar icon. Which brings up another point: Jump Lists rock.

Right-clicking a taskbar icon brings up that’s program’s Jump List—quick links to the most recent files you’ve opened with that program. Got a file or template you open often? Pin it to the Jump List by dragging it onto the program’s taskbar icon, or by clicking the pin icon to the right of the file name in the Jump List itself. Jump Lists can skirt around Windows’ frustrating refusal to pin individual folders to the taskbar, pinning folders to the Jump List instead.
