YSK: Switch programs on Windows using the Windows Key + Any number

I’m a fan of using Alt + Tab, is a great fast and easy way to switch between programs on Windows. A trick not many people know is that you can use the Windows Key + Any number to switch to an specific program instead of selecting from several ones.

Here’s how it works:


This feature puts numbers to each program on your tray bar starting from 1 and ending (obviously) on 9 (I don’t know if 0 will work as 10 (who can have 10 programs running at the same time?!)). In case you have an icon with 2 or more options (like Explorer above), just keep pressing the number to toggle between windows.
