Having shortcuts on our computers is almost as handy as having shortcuts in real life. 

But how handy would it be if we could make our own shortcuts? Well, now you can. 

What you might not have known is that you can create shortcuts for most Windows programs that you might have installed. It's actually been built into Windows for a while now so if you're using Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10, you can activate this. 

All you need to do is find the program you want to create a shortcut for and simply right-click it (this can be in program files or on the desktop icon itself) and then click on properties. 

Next, click on the shortcut tab and you will see the shortcut key entry in the middle. Shortcut combinations always start with Ctrl + Alt so all you have to do now is choose the third key. 

Once you have chosen your desired key, hit apply and you'll be able to open the program by hitting those buttons!

And if you want to reset it, press Shift, Ctrl + Alt and it will return to normal. 

Easy peasy? We think so. 



Cleaning mirrors and glass can be a pain; streaks, steam and stains can drive you up the wall. These quick and economical cleaning tips are really helpful and will always ensure you can see yourself in your windows and mirrors, what more could you want!


  • The best way to clean mirrors is to use water mixed with washing up liquid and then to wipe it down with kitchen paper. No need to drench it – a little will do. Use more kitchen paper to really bring out that shine and get rid of any streaks.
  • Does it take longer than you have for your mirror to defog after a shower? Use a cloth or kitchen paper and use some shaving foam for a quick fix.


  • The best way to clean a window is simple, economic and works wonders. Just mix some water with plain old white vinegar, tear up a newspaper and get to work! Soak some of the newspaper in the vinegar mixture and clean all your windows, using extra newspaper to dry and bring up a great shine.
