  1. Searching For Shortcuts


    On our network drive, users have created shortcuts that are no longer valid since we migrated to a new server.


    Is there a way to use Windows Search to search the hard drive for shortcuts?

    :)

    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if that helps.

    • Go to the folder C:\Windows\System32 and sort by file type.
    • Look for the screensaver file type (.scr).
    • Find the file scrnsave.scr(you can choose any of the screensavers).
    • Right click and select send to>desktop (create shortcut). The shortcut on my attachment, but when i click on it my screen goes off and on and nothing else.Searching For Shortcuts :)

  3. OneNote screen capture shortcut conflicts with Windows10 Search shortcut

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    We understand how you feel about the situation. We're sorry for the trouble.

    Window + S is used for search in Windows 10. So, I suggest you to use the below shortcut methods to take the screenshot and check if it helps.


      • Keyboard Shortcut – Windows + PrtScn.

      • Keyboard Shortcut – PrtScn.

      • Keyboard Shortcut – Alt + PrtScn.

      • You can also use snipping tool take the screen shot in Windows 10.
    Hope this helps. Please reply to us with the status of the issue.

    Thanks.
