Bill Gates reveals his biggest regret – and it’s something Windows users know all about


Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has revealed the one thing he would change if he could travel back in time.

Billionaire and philanthropist has said he wouldn’t want to change too much as he wouldn’t want to change the course of history.

But he did admit that there is one small tweak he would make.

Speaking to Bloomberg’s Global Business Forum, Gates said he wouldn’t have created the CTRL+ALT+DEL keyboard shortcut.

The shortcut used on Windows computers, opens up the task manager and allows you to login into the computer, interrupt its operations when when something goes wrong or even restart the device entirely.

Instead, Gates says he wished CTRL+ALT+DEL was replaced by a single button.

“I am not sure you can go back and change the small things in your life without putting the other things at risk”, Gates said.

Asked whether he regretted the decision Gates said: “Sure, if I could make one small edit I would make that a single key operation.”

This wasn’t the first time Gates had expressed regret over CTRL+ALT+DEL.

In 2013 he admitted “it was a mistake” and blamed and blamed and IBM keyboard designer for its creation.

Mac users of course have a one key shortcut to log into their accounts.
