      Super+F -> Firefox
      Super+R -> Terminal
      Super+E -> File Manager
      Super+X -> Note-taking program

        Holy shit why did I never do this before.

        I tried Linux and all the keybinding was a lot of fun, I gotta do it more with windows. I built my own specialized keyboard for inputting chords when I’m writing lyric sheets and I set CTRL+Tab as the keybind to switch between that and QWERTY.

          I do composing, too, and I’ve written my fair share of shoddy scripts to automate tasks, but changing up the whole keyboard layout for a task, that’s the sort of madness I aspire to. 🙃

            I actually think this is slightly out of date, I combined Aug and dim into its own key with Shift for Alt, and maybe for flat/sharp, too?

          Yeah, I had it on Super+T at first, too, but I have the command/application/everything runner bound to Super+Esc and I open a lot of terminal windows throughout the day, so I re-bound it to Super+R just because it’s slightly easier to reach.

    I pin things on the taskbar if it’ll help me make an offensive word. Adobe and Microsoft app icons really help open up the Scrabble board.

      Wait till you hear about a direct launch hotkey in your window manager

          That’s nothing, I use a magnetized needle and a steady hand.

            Pffsh, that’s baby mode, I use butterflies by releasing them at just the right time to cause the air currents to change just right to cause a solar ray to pass through the atmosphere and flip the bit I want to flip. It is a bit trickier with error correcting memory…

    With a 4k monitor and small icons you can fit tons on your taskbar. It’s how I roll and it’s no honor. I don’t pin games there though, that’s what steam is for. Steam isn’t even on my taskbar, it’s in the system tray/active notification spot in the corner.

      The first ten are still somewhat more important since you can access them via Win+1, Win+2 and so on.

        Bold of you to assume that Steam isn’t one of the select few softwares that I actually allow to run on startup

        (Personally I still pinned it though because that way, its icon is always in the same place in my taskbar)

      Same, but I did add a keybinging for my code editor. If I used a file manager I would probably also bind it, but I currently just use the terminal for everything
