Here’s a quick tip for opening apps you have pinned to the taskbar in Windows 11.

Of course, you can always click on the icons, but you can also open them with a super-easy keyboard shortcut. Just press the Windows Key plus the number of the app’s position on the taskbar. For example, pressing the Windows key +1 opens File Explorer. Windows key +2 would open Edge and so on.

The number doesn’t take into account the icons for the Start button, search, desktops, or widgets. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
