At times you may have seen an ad that takes up your entire screen and there is no way out of it. Eventually you are forced to do a Ctrl-Alt-Del and shut the browser down or use a popup killer to prevent them in the first place. I just found out a new trick today that I was not aware of.

By pressing Alt-F4 you can close down any full screen window immediately. So far its been working great for me, not sure if it works for all circumstances though.

I have lot's of keyboard shortcuts for Win 9x (most of which work on 2000 and XP)

My favorite is CTRL + ESC followed immediately by Alt + M -- minimizes all open windows instantly in all Windose OS's I've used.
