Image transcription: a meme that reads"I wish windows had a universal hotkey to open linkedin on my default browser ctrl + shift + alt + win + L:" below is an image of Mercy from Overwatch holding her hand out in a gesture that suggests offering aid. End transcription.

Didnt belive it . Tried it . Confused. What were they thinking when they decide to make this

[-] [email protected] 70 points 1 week ago

iirc Ctrl + Alt + Shift + Win is an alias for the Office key found on some Surface Pro computers, which can be used to open LinkedIn with Office + L

[-] [email protected] 54 points 1 week ago

Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Win is one of the most windows things that could happen. You just press some keys that should do nothing and boom, microsoft ad. I hope the EU version of windows will be stripped of that crap.

whispering give in, dualboot linux
[-] [email protected] 17 points 1 week ago

My personal machines are all on linux already. But unfortunately my work laptop isn't and won't be unless I find a different job.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 1 week ago

Then let's hope for a better windows in Europe

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 week ago

Dual boot? Disgusting. Windows doesn’t get the privilege of bare metal in my house. It must relegated to a virtual machine

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 week ago

That's good but some people use windows for ~~rootkits~~games that need bare metal or a more difficult vm setup

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 week ago

VM gaming was a lot easier to setup than I expected. Anything is possible with the Arch Wiki! Some anticheats will block you though, so super competitive games like Counterstrike or Apex Legends are out

Ah, so that's my ctrl+alt+shift+win opens the office app. I discovered that a couple of years ago and I couldn't find it documented anywhere.

it's for a special ma keyboard with shortcuts for ms apps.
somw keyboards have an Office key.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 week ago

wasn't this part of a plan for a special keyboard with keys for some common websites?

[-] [email protected] 10 points 1 week ago

Debian KDE has that same shortcut lmao

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 week ago

Just tested, no it doesn’t.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 week ago

I think it'll be added in plasma 6 then, idk I remember seeing a merge request about it

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 week ago* (last edited 1 week ago)

I really gotta see a source for that. No way that would be merged.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 5 days ago

I mean, it's be funny

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 week ago

mint better

[-] [email protected] 44 points 1 week ago

It's a key sequence by default: Win, l, i, n, k, e, d, i, n, Enter

[-] [email protected] 25 points 1 week ago

Not if you turned off search results in the start menu.

[-] [email protected] 26 points 1 week ago

By default 😹

[-] [email protected] 40 points 1 week ago

There's more:

  • T: Teams
  • Y: Yammer (whatever that is)
  • O: Outlook
  • P: PowerPoint
  • D: OneDrive
  • L: LinkedIn
  • W: Word
  • X: Excel
  • N: OneNote
[-] [email protected] 15 points 1 week ago

Yammer (now/soon called viva engage) is a weird social media service for internal usage inside a company.

I have no idea why it exists, but it does.

[-] [email protected] 36 points 1 week ago

I'm not going to install Windows just to try this

[-] [email protected] 18 points 1 week ago

Can verify, it works. Am horrified and baffled in equal measure.

[-] [email protected] 35 points 1 week ago* (last edited 1 week ago)

LinkedIn lunatics eating good.

[-] [email protected] 28 points 1 week ago

Question though: Does it ACTUALLY pick YOUR default browser, or does it pick their favourite browser?

[-] [email protected] 21 points 1 week ago

it actually opens in the default browser

[-] [email protected] 19 points 1 week ago
[-] [email protected] 16 points 1 week ago

My pet peeve is when companies add extra complexity to their products for very little benefit, or like this, actually make it worse. In this case they could have done nothing and the product would have been better for it.

[-] [email protected] 15 points 1 week ago

Well, it's a 'feature' on that one line of laptop. Besides it's not like shortcuts performance suffer because of this, it's merely an obscure 'fun to know'.

[-] [email protected] 14 points 1 week ago
[-] [email protected] 12 points 1 week ago

Wtf (you can do this with auto hotkey)

[-] [email protected] 10 points 1 week ago
