Quickly open items on your Windows 7 taskbar

Windows 7 has a large taskbar at the bottom of the screen where you can pin your most popular programs. There is a little known feature for keyboard junkies to open these programs quickly.

In the windows 7 taskbar illustrated there are two icons that are displayed. Counting from the left  holding down the [Windows Key] and pressing a number starting with 1 will open that application.

So   [Windows Key] +1 will open Windows Explorer and  [Windows Key] +2 will open Windows Media Player.
