Default Your favorite hotkeys/keyboard shortcuts

Post your favorite keyboard shortcuts so maybe others can adopt them.

Firefox
Ctrl+Shift+T (re-open last closed tab, this thing is a lifesaver)
Ctrl+T (open new tab)
Of course Ctrl+Tab or Ctrl+Shift+Tab to cycle through tabs

Google Reader
I don't use my mouse to read my feeds. This is so much quicker when you get used to it.

Shift+P/N (up/down one feed in menu), Shift+O (open feed), Shift+A (mark all read), J/K (next, previous item), S (star item), V (open in new window/tab), etc. You can press ? in GR to see a whole list.

Windows
I love the Windows key

Win (start menu), Win+D (show desktop), Win+R (run dialog), Win+Break (system info), Win+M (minimize windows, different than show desktop)

Photoshop
Nearly everything that has a shortcut I use, keys for tools, Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S for Save for Web (really handy), Ctrl+Shift+I/C for image/canvas resizing, and so forth.

G1..G18 + (M2 / G1..G18 and M3/ G1..G18)

G1 = Opera
G2 = Outlook
G3 = Live Messenger
etc.

Extremely productive, just a single keypress. And what is that? Logitech G15 :-)

Btw, in Opera simply +/- on numeric keypad zooms the page.

Win+D, I use it so often @ work that if they did away with it, I'd be broken hearted

Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V- I would go crazy without these. I can't stand it when someone highlights something, right clicks on it to pick copy, then right clicks wherever they want to paste it and pick paste. Sooo much slower.

Win+D

Photoshop I try to use as many as I can. Speeds up productivity.

AutoCAD - you can do pretty much everything from the command line (ie l = line, c = circle, di = distance, xl = construction line, f = fillet, tr = trim, the list goes on and on and on. )

IE7 - Ctrl-T (new tab), Ctrl-W (Close current tab), Ctrl-tab (switch between tabs)

Oh yeah and the G1 through G18 keys on my G15 keyboard. I have my commonly used programs mapped to them so they are all just a key press away.

You guys who use Win + D are n00bs. Just put a Show Desktop Icon in your Quick Launch tray.

On that note, I always bind Ctrl to one of my mouse buttons. I had to get a new mouse for work because I was missing it.
