Craig was sucked into the endless vortex of tech at an early age, only to be spat back out babbling things like "phase-locked-loop crystal oscillators!". Mostly this receives a pat on the head from the listener, followed closely by a question about what laptop they should buy.

Are you one of those people who press Ctrl + Alt + Delete and then hit the Task Manager button to see your running processes, check performance and kill errant applications?

Tired of the two-step process? Thankfully, there's a quicker way — just press Ctrl + Shift + Esc for a direct path to one of the most useful tools in the Windows user's arsenal.
