If you pin a program to taskbar in Windows 7 or 8 and want to run it directly without clicking on the icon, you can use Win key + number of the icon from the left. So if would you have icon like this :
To run Visual Studio 2010 I would have to press Win + number 7. But picture a situation that you want to run the program with Admin rights, then you have two possibilities :
- Right click the icon then right click the name of the app and click choose Run as administrator option. Like this :
- Press CTRL + SHIFT + Win key + number of icon and you will be directly asked by UAC if you want to run the app with Admin rights.
Hope this will speed launching of your apps a bit.
