If I press the Win Key + a number I can switch to or open the program pinned to the task bar. This works up to 9. If I want to get beyond 9, and into the double digits what do I press?

According to Microsoft Support, it seems 10 (0) is the highest you can get:

Windows logo + number

Start the program pinned to the taskbar in the position indicated by the number. If the program is already running, switch to that program.

Another trick you could try is:

Windows logo + T

Cycle through programs on the taskbar with the arrow keys.

    Acually 0 works for the tenth. Commented May 15, 2013 at 13:30

    Win+T actually also puts focus on the taskbar. You can then use the left and right arrow or the Home and End keys to select a pinned item. The item can then be activated with Enter. Commented May 15, 2013 at 13:51
