    If you only have one account on your PC and really don't want the hassle of having to log on to windows every freaking time, type "control userpasswords2" in the command prompt to get a window where you can set it that windows automatically logs on with a given account.

    One can easily evade Windows passwords by using Linux live images booted from the pen-drive or DVD :ninja:
    Only way to prevent that is by encrypting your HDD :grog:

    (And obviously, you already know the above, sorry!)

    That doesn't only work for alt-tab but also for ctrl-tab! Ctrl-tab makes you move to the next "tab", ctrl-shift-tab to the previous one. This works in almost all browsers, IDE's/text editors, ....

    I imagine adding shift to any key-combo which "cycles" through a list will reverse it as well.

    If you want to copy and paste text in Skype without having the sometimes annoying quote formatting around it, Ctrl + Shift + V. That actually works in many programs and pastes text without the formatting.

    Turning it off and on again will usually fix most tech problems.

    quickly open a command prompt :

    hold shift and right click on your desktop , you now have a command prompt option.

    also shift and right click will give you a shit load more send to... options...

    Some more:

    1. With a bit of work you can turn almost anything into a homeserver
    2. If you have python, run the http.server in the current directory to quickly setup a http server. Useful for sharing files.
    Code:
    python3 -m http.server

    Tip some people don't know:
    You can access the the Command prompt with a certain folder instead of using the CD command by Holding Shift while right clicking a folder, You should see an option called open in command prompt. Pressing that opens command prompt with the folder you selected as it's directory making it useful for some programs so you don't have to type the CD command every time.

    Do not use x86-video-intel drivers in Linux, they are not properly maintained and have worse 3D performance than KMS
