  1. Getting used to using your keyboard exclusively and leaving your mouse behind will make you much more efficient at performing any task on any Windows system. I use the following keyboard shortcuts every day:
  2.  
  3. Windows key + R = Run menu
  4.  
  5. This is usually followed by:
  6. cmd = Command Prompt
  7. iexplore + "web address" = Internet Explorer
  8. compmgmt.msc = Computer Management
  9. dhcpmgmt.msc = DHCP Management
  10. dnsmgmt.msc = DNS Management
  11. services.msc = Services
  12. eventvwr = Event Viewer
  13. dsa.msc = Active Directory Users and Computers
  14. dssite.msc = Active Directory Sites and Services
  15. Windows key + E = Explorer
  16.  
  17. ALT + Tab = Switch between windows
  18.  
  19. ALT, Space, X = Maximize window
  20.  
  21. CTRL + Shift + Esc = Task Manager
  22.  
  23. Windows key + Break = System properties
  24.  
  25. Windows key + F = Search
  26.  
  27. Windows key + D = Hide/Display all windows
  28.  
  29. CTRL + C = copy
  30.  
  31. CTRL + X = cut
  32.  
  33. CTRL + V = paste
  34.  
  35. Also don't forget about the "Right-click" key next to the right Windows key on your keyboard. Using the arrows and that key can get just about anything done once you've opened up any program.
