It amazes me that after all these years using Windows I still learn new shortcuts and new ways of doing things. Today in the taskbar (start bar) I accidentally clicked my middle mouse button on a notepad document I had open. It opened a new blank instance of notepad!

Then I tried it on chrome: new window, then file explorer: new file explorer instance, it goes on. So handy this will be! The most exciting one for me is file explorer. I’m sure there is a myriad of other ways to do this, but I sure do like this one! Especially since it works with a variety of programs.

This is not something I’ve seen published before in lists of shortcuts for Windows, I like to browse through those from time to time to see if I’m missing any exceedingly handy-dandy tricks.
