Ctrl+Shift+T in a browser.

If only this worked with Windows Explorer windows!

WinKey+B for system tray access and navigation via the left/right arrows.

Mmm, convenient  :up:



Recently learned about Ctrl+Shift+L in Eclipse (Help > Key Assist...).

Just discovered this last week:
Open Notepad, and hit F5.
It pops the time and date. 
You have successfully made me open notepad and try press F1 to F12... What a joke. ;D

A handy combination that I had to search like hell to find.  If a program's window disappears from the screen but it is still open - meaning the window has moved to a location off the screen:

Alt-Tab to the missing window, then Alt-Space, M, then any arrow key. Now move your mouse and the missing window will suddenly pop back onto the screen.
...
I wonder if I can make an Autohotkey macro to do it. Then I wouldn't have to remember it with my brain.
How's this?  Control+Alt+Shift+S to invoke:
...

When I've had that happen in the past, I kept an autohotkey script on my desktop that would grab the last active window and center it.  So I would select the hidden program in the taskbar, and hit the script, but I agree a custom hotkey would be better.
Since abandoning Windows, I don't have a copy to reference, but this may do the trick, anyone care to test?
Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. WinActivate ; grabs the [url=http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/LastFoundWindow.htm]Last Found Window[/url]
  2. WinMove, (A_ScreenWidth/2)-(Width/2), (A_ScreenHeight/2)-(Height/2)
