Windows Explorer Icon

The Windows Explorer is used by millions of users in homes and offices every day to access files and folders. The majority of users don’t know the many time-saving keyboard shortcuts available.

Well we have been hard at work here in Berlin since we brought KeyRocket out of Beta last month. The latest release of KeyRocket, in addition to Microsoft Office shortcuts, enables users to learn the most important Windows Explorer shortcuts while they work.

KeyRocket now suggests many useful but little known shortcuts like:

  • Rename Files/Folder – F2
  • Create New Folder – Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Go Back to Previous Folder – Backspace
  • Open Windows Explorer – Windows + E

KeyRocket users can now learn and use all of the Windows Explorer shortcuts. It supports Explorer shortcuts for Windows 7, Windows XP and Vista.

‘It’s amazing that even as a shortcut expert KeyRocket taught me something new. In my case Ctrl + Shift + N to create a new folder was a real productivity boost.’ – Jan Mechtel, KeyRocket Founder.
