windows7Reddit features a comprehensive Windows XP, Vista, and 7 shortcut list, including some of the most useful ones. Here are my personal favorites (works only on Vista or Windows 7):

  • Middle click an app on dock – Open a new app instance
  • Middle click a thumbnail from dock – Close app instance/tab
  • Alt – bring up old-style file menus where they’ve been removed
  • Winkey + P – multi-display config quick-switch (press twice to switch)
  • Winkey + X – bring up laptop settings control panel
  • Winkey + T – dock keyboard mode (use arrow keys)
  • Winkey + (shift +) tab – Flip 3D task switcher
  • Winkey + left, right, up or down key – manage window position
