Windows Keyboard Shortcut: Quick, Launch the Task Manager! CodeUnit 11 JUL 2011

Here’s a nifty Windows keyboard shortcut which I was not aware of until recently. My version of Vista tends to freeze a lot, meaning a lot of sluggish trips through to the Open Task Manager button on the Control+Alt+Delete screen. However, with this particular keyboard shortcut, you can launch Task Manager directly, which is pretty awesome if your machine is about to keel over and you don’t want the poor thing struggling to draw new and unnecessary windows!

To launch, simply press Control+Shift+Escape, which will quick launch task manager in the blink of an eye.
