Keyboard shortcuts

Introduction

First, let me say that this is a very, very rough draft of this list. I wanted to jot down a couple of my most used keyboard shortcuts to share. Don't expect to see the ones that are readily available in just about all programs (i.e. Ctrl+C). Instead, I'm going to try to focus on ones that aren't obvious and seemingly hidden. If you have any of interest, feel free to let me know!

Wow, it's been a while since I found a good shortcut. This shortcut is one I've been wanting for a while, tho... kind of. It sends the currently selected window to the bottom of the "stack." Pretty nice. Now, I just need a shortcut to bring one to the front or top of the "stack."

I added an old favorite that must've slipped my mind: the Windows context menu shortcut. This, along with the start menu shortcut, can be very useful when you don't have access to a Windows keyboard, despite the fact that they've become fairly ubiquitous over the years.

Some new and some old, I decided to add some Excel shortcuts after finding out about the shortcut to switch between worksheets, which I've been wanting for years.
