F5 is refresh in pretty much every Windows program I have ever worked with regardless of the Windows OS.

I know a quick shutdown shortcut...
Just press WindowsKey+u+u and your computer will immediately shutdown. :D

* It works on Service pack 2!

here's another (maybe most of you know it already.. :roll: ). pressing "WindowsKey+r" opens the RUN dialog from where you can run some programs. Also "WindowsKey+f" opens the search window from where you can search for files on your computer and also web pages.

and here's one mind-blasting (and very needed many times!) shortcut. pressing "WindowsKey+m" minimizes all the open windows and shows your desktop. :pirate:

:dance: tip: try pressing "WinKey" in combination with other keys and trust me you will find many others (grave secrets of windows.. hehehe)!

bye!

Shift + F10
On many keyboards there is also a single key for it that looks like a picture of a dropdown window.

:wha: did someone DELETE my post?!? God "bless" him who did that!

anyway, i'll tell you some shortcuts nevertheless...

pressing SHIFT while a CD inserted into the drive will NOT autoplay it.
another one is pressing "F2" while a file or drive is selected will make its name editable. so there's no need to right click it and select "Rename".

c u :robot:

Windows+R !!!
Everything i do is from the run command! I utilize the system32 folder to create my own run shortcuts.

You place things in system32? Why not just create a directory and add it to your user path?

I love keyboard shortcuts!!! I use most of the ones listed (at least once a week) and then create my own keyboard shortcuts (macros) to help me to repetitive things without the tedium of doing them OVER AND OVER again!

=D
