Pressing Windows Key + C will launch Cortana into listening mode. You can say things like “Open Microsoft Word” or “Set a reminder” and Cortana will execute the specific command. Other miscellaneous commands such as “How old is Morgan Freeman?” can be asked and Cortana will execute an online search for you.

Windows Key + Up – snaps the active window to the top
Windows Key + Down – snaps the active window to the bottom
Windows Key + Right – snaps the active window to the right
Windows Key + Left – snaps the active window to the left
