    alt+tab = cycles thru opened apps

    windows key+R = run command

    print screen key = takes a screen shot of ur desktop

    f5 = refresh

    easy no0b stuff. what's some good ones?

    What you just posted are known as hotkeys not keyboard commands the commands are something else which is for i/o commands for the controller which interrupt each keystrokes and translates it.

    Now hotkeys are nothing special they are just simply TIGGER EVENTS which is fixed, not all hotkey works under all platforms. You can make your own hotkeys and assgine it a task based on the script you write and what action you want to perform.

    PS: As you are using M$ WinBLOW you can google for a list but it does not mean it will work for me or anyone else unless its very common task or supported by the bios as its i/o basic function.

    okay, the WINDOWS ones (alternative OS purists can pass) i use often not mentioned yet.

    F2 = rename
    alt-f4 = close window
    windows-e = explorer (i use this on vista more since explorer & my computer are the same interface now unlike previous ver)
    windows-d = show desktop aka toggle minimize all
    ctrl-f = find
    ctrl-x/c/v = cut/copy/paste of course
    ctrl-p = print
    ctrl-a = select all
    ctrl-z = undo (in apps ctrl-y is usually redo i believe)
    alt-prtscn = screenshot of only the active window

    those are about all the ones i routinely use in the interest of convenience or saving time moving my hand back and forth. alt-tab alone is my fave.

    my first google result turned up this pretty comprehensive list from another forum. it includes specific app ones aswell.

    I use all of the above along with windows key + pause break for system properties and alt+D while in firefox or IE to select the address bar.
