#172 Useful Shortcuts for Windows Laptops

May 21, 2013

Here are two shortcuts that make it easy to adjust settings for connecting to projectors, connecting to wireless networks, and preserving battery life:

 

Windows Key + X: Open Windows Mobility Center

Windows Mobility Center allows you to adjust display brightness, system volume, battery plans, wireless settings, and more.

Windows Key + P: Adjust Presentation Settings

Although you can manage your presentation settings via Windows Mobility Center, this shortcut is useful if you connect to a projector or second monitor and want to quickly send video to one or both displays.
