Quick way to open your Camera App (Windows 10) *

Do you use your Windows 10 Camera App? Perhaps to check your hair - in "reverse" - before you join your next Zoom or Teams meeting?

Well, I spent some time in the office of a client yesterday and noticed she opened the App in a long-winded way. Obviously nothing wrong with that, but do you know this nifty trick?

  1. Press WIN and type camera.
  2. Press ENTER.

No need to take your hands off the keyboard! To close with a keyboard shortcut, press ALT + F4.

Apart from checking your looks you can use the app to take a photo or record a video. Your files end up in a folder called Camera Roll. And guess what ... simply press the WIN key and type roll to find it.
