Awesome list - thanks

That's a good list as far as it goes. It would be unrealistic to publish a fully comprehensive list of shortcuts, but notably missing were some of my favorites:

  • Shift+Arrow (left or right) -- Selects text & objects in the direction of the arrow you press
  • Shift+End -- Selects from cursor position to end of the line
  • Shift+Home -- Selects from cursor position to beginning of line
  • F12 -- Save As
  • Windows Key+E -- Windows Explorer (aka, "My Computer")

And, two that are limited to Windows 7:

  • Windows Key+Left Arrow -- Re-sizes current window to fill the left half screen
  • Windows Key+Right Arrow -- Re-sizes current window to fill the right half screen

These last 2 are really useful on widescreen monitors when you're having to switch between 2 windows, and are working in both.


It may also be useful to point out that it's not necessary to use the utmost finesse, thereby releasing both or all 3 keys at exactly the same time. In the case of Ctrl+Alt+Delete, for example, press and hold down the Ctrl and Alt keys, press and release the Delete key, then release the other 2.
