5 (five) nifty tips I found
1. Send To Shortcuts
If you right-click a file, select Send To from the menu and hold SHIFT pressed while choosing the destination a shortcut will be created at the destination instead.
2. Run in Taskbar
You can add a toolbar to the Task Bar that functions more or less like the Run dialog in the Start Menu. You can add this by right-clicking free space on the Task Bar and choosing Address from the Toolbars menu. The keyboard shortcut Windows R is a tad faster in my experience.
3. Open a new Explorer window
If you only use one explorer window / folder you might find this tip useful. You can open another explorer window by holding SHIFT when opening a folder.
4. Open the Registry in several editors
You can only open the Registry once with the command regedit. If you want to open it more than once to compare settings for instance you can start it with the /m parameter. (Windows R, regedit /m, enter)
5. Rename several files at once
It is possible to rename several files at once. Press Shift for files that have the same name and CTRL for different file names. Then right-click the selected files and select Rename from the list of options.
