How to Open Any File or Folder using Keyboard Shortcut [Windows]

You know that Windows is one of the best operating system, which is being used by millions of people out there. This is popular because it has so many free software that could do anything.

Previously, I have shared so many software to do several things. Now, it’s time to mention yet another software for you that might be helpful.

If you are using Windows and want to open something like file, folder, application, Control Panel, Command Prompt or even if you want to shutdown, restart, Logoff or Hibernate your PC through keyboard shortcut, here is a tutorial for you.

This is not much time spending task because today I am going to use a third party software that will get everything done.
