Some useful commands’ shortcut

Normally you would not associate windows with commands. For everything, you have to navigate through a couple of menu using the mouse before getting to the concerned window/utility/tool etc. but windows does come with commands that give you quick access to tools for configuring and fixing our computer. Some of these are very helpful if you prefer the use of keyboard more than your mouse and don’t like moving your hand back and forth between them or suddenly the touchpad of your laptop stops working/ behaves erratically. Just press press win + R to get the Run command dialog box to get started.
