Sanjay Uttam Predominantly .NET

Very impatient, moderately lazy;  I use the keyboard to do whatever I can whether I’m in Visual Studio, navigating the web, or just moving around the O/S.  For example, if I need to  launch word I’m just going to hit the Windows Key + R and then type WinWord.  I use that technique for basically anything I know the application name for…notepad, calc, whatever.  If the application name is “too much” for me to type I’ll create a real old-skool bat file and throw it into my C:/Windows/System32/ folder.  A few of the handy ones that I use lately are the following…

REM Clear cache in IE
start "" "RunDll32.exe" InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 8
REM Google something on a new FF tab
REM usage example: g "C# Generics"
echo off
start "" "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
REM Launch VS2008
echo off
start "" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /nosplash"

It’s not exactly rocket-science but it works pretty well.
