  • Windows Shortcut Keys

    I usually do a Windows Restart using Ctrl-Esc u r and Windows Standby using Ctrl-Esc u s. Is there a similar shortcut for Win 7? My guess is that the shortcuts are similar to Vista?

    if you find any combinations let me know, I need some more windows shortcuts.

    do you use the extended menu or the classic menu?

      I uses a lot of (old) windows shortcut keys, but many of them don't work in Win 7. I haven't change the menu in Win 7 yet since it looks just so foreign, i don't even know where to start to change it. lol
