Opening Programs

To open a program, click its taskbar button . A few simple (but not obvious) tricks let you do more:

• To open a new instance of a program, Shift+click its taskbar button . This is useful for programs that are already running, in which an ordinary click switches to the existing instance or, if you already have multiple open instances, displays the window thumbnails. (If you have a wheel mouse or other three-button mouse, middle-click serves the same purpose as Shift+click .)

• To open a new instance with administrative privileges, Ctrl + Shift+click a taskbar button.
