    Keyboard Shortcuts

       
    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.

    Windows key + R = Run menu
    This is usually followed by:
    cmd = Command Prompt
    iexplore + "web address" = Internet Explorer
    compmgmt.msc = Computer Management
    dhcpmgmt.msc = DHCP Management
    dnsmgmt.msc = DNS Management
    services.msc = Services
    eventvwr = Event Viewer
    dsa.msc = Active Directory Users and Computers
    dssite.msc = Active Directory Sites and Services
    Windows key + E = Explorer
    ALT + Tab = Switch between Windows
    ALT, Space, X = Maximize window
    CTRL + Shift + Esc = Task Manager
    Windows key + Break = System properties
    Windows key + F = Search
    Windows key + D = Hide/Display all Windows
    CTRL + C = copy
    CTRL + X = cut
    CTRL + V = paste

    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.
