You can also create your own keyboard shortcuts to quick-launch your favorite folders and applications by going to the folder's or program's properties (right-click on the folder or application shortcut) and entering your own key combination in the "Shortcut key" field. In short, you don't have to have a multimonitor setup to get the most out of your PC. There are lots of ways you can maximize your productivity--even on a small screen.
