Essential Windows Keyboard Short-cuts

The following Windows keyboard short-cuts that make my life a little easier. I know they work in Win XP as well as in Win 7, I didn't try them in Win 8 yet. Not a big fan.

Windows Short-cuts

  1. Windows Button + D = Go to Desktop
  2. Windows Button + Tab = Navigate through Windows
  3. Windows Button + Shift + Tab = Navigate through Windows (Reverse)
  4. Windows Button + L = Lock Windows
  5. Alt + F4 = Close Active Window
  6. Alt + Tab = Navigate through Windows
  7. Alt + Shift + Tab = Navigate through Windows (Reverse)
  8. Ctrl + Shift + Esc = Open Task Manager
  9. Ctrl + A = Select All
  10. Ctrl + C = Copy
  11. Ctrl + X = Cut
  12. Ctrl + V = Paste
  13. Ctrl + Z = Undo
  14. Ctrl + Y = Redo
  15. Ctrl + S = Save
  16. F5 = Refresh
  17. Shift + Delete = Delete items permanently (without taking them to Recycle Bin)

Internet Browser Short-cuts

  1. Ctrl + T = New Tab
  2. Ctrl + N = New Window
  3. Ctrl + Tab = Navigate through Tabs
  4. Ctrl + Shift + Tab = Navigate through Tabs (Reverse)
  5. Ctrl + W = Close Tab

  11. Ctrl + F = Find
  12. Ctrl + P = Print
  13. Alt + Left Arrow = Go Back (History)
  14. Alt + Right Arrow = Go Forward (History)
  15. Spacebar = Scroll Down (fast)
  16. Shift + Space = Scroll Up
  17. Click Mousewheel on a Link = Opens Link in a New Tab
  18. Click Mousewheel on a Tab = Closes that Tab
  19. Crtl + Number (1 - 9) = Navigate to that Tab (e.g: Tab + 3 = Jumps to 3rd Tab)
  20. In the Address bar, instead of typing e.g. "www.google.com", simply type "google" and press Shift + Enter. The "www" and ".com" will be automatically entered.

I hope these come in handy.
