Holding down the shift key and clicking a shortcut key in the task bar opens a new window of it.

I HATE the new Windows Key+E, I used to use it all the time to open My Computer but now it opens "Libraries".

EDIT - Well this says it's supposed to open "Computer" for me, but it opens Libraries as I said...

Open or close the Start menu
Windows logo key +Pause
Display the System Properties dialog box

Well, Libraries is extremely similar to My Computer; the drives are just located on the left.

How do you launch a program that is beyond the 10th place? For example, Outlook is in position 12, and pressing Windows logo key + 12 obviously doesn't work. Instead it launches programs in position 1 and 2.

I want to to be able to program a macro on my Logitech G500 mouse to launch Outlook and, if it is already open, switch to it. Simply setting the mouse button to launch outlook.exe will open a new instance of Outlook every time the button is pressed.
