For unknown shortcuts in Windows I found the following ones to be most interesting:
- [winkey]-TAB is similar to ALT-TAB but uses the order of the buttons in the taskbar
- [winkey]-E brings up Windows Explorer
- [winkey]-D shows the desktop (minimizes all windows).
- [winkey]-L locks your workstation
- [winkey]-R gets the run dialog up
- Ctrl – [Num Pad +] makes the columns fit their contents (great in Windows Explorer!)
- When you have a messagebox (a.k.a alert) hitting CTRL-C will copy the text of the messagebox to the clipboard.
For Remote Desktop:
- CTRL+ALT+END (Open the Microsoft Windows NT Security dialog box)
- ALT+PAGE UP (Switch between programs from left to right)
- ALT+PAGE DOWN (Switch between programs from right to left)
- CTRL+ALT+BREAK (Switch the client computer between a window and a full screen)
- CTRL+ALT+Minus sign (-) (Place a snapshot of the entire client window area on the Terminal server clipboard and provide the same functionality as pressing ALT+PRINT SCREEN on a local computer.)
- CTRL+ALT+Plus sign (+) (Place a snapshot of the active window in the client on the Terminal server clipboard and provide the same functionality as pressing PRINT SCREEN on a local computer.)
A huge list of shortcuts can also be found on the Microsoft support site.
