Figured I would start a thread about this because it would most likely be useful to a large user base here at DC and not just me, so maybe this will get some attention...
Anyways- I recently became keyboard nut. I am going insane with hotkeys and shortcuts. My mouse has a longer battery life
and I am working faster. My point is, what other hotkeys are there (for most programs, they seem to share the same ones for the same/similar functions, thats what I am talking about)?
For those that may not know, I will list of what I know (off the top of my head)
Control+Alt+Delete - the infamous key combo seconds before the bashing on the keyboard (Starts Task Manager)
Alt+F4 - close the current window
Start key+E - open My Computer/Windows Explorer
Control+T - TABS! Open a new tab in your web browser
Control W - close the current window/current tab in web browser (and some other apps, ex Pidgin)
Start+R - Run! (your program or command)
Backspace - go back a page/up a level
Insert - in word documents, overwrite text after the current letter by hitting insert and typing your text. Hit insert again when done to toggle off.
Delete - delete a file/folder/etc and delete characters after the current cursor line thingy...
Start key+Tab (Vista only, AERO required) - Vista's "Windows Flip 3D" version of Alt-Tab
Alt+Tab - view and switch to different running apps by holding alt and tapping tab
Control+O - open a file
Control+S - save a file
Control+F - find
Control+H - find & replace
Control+X - cut
Control+C - copy
Control+V - paste
Scroll Lock+X - Xfire In-Game Chat
I am sure I missed a lot, but this is (supposed to be) a learning thread, and I am sure that I at least helped someone learn a new hotkey (I hope...)
Please list any others that you know of!
