Your fave shortcuts?
OK, so it's a Sunday and I'm on EduGeek, but it's for a purpose.
What are your favourite Windows shortcuts (via keyboard).
I'm meaning stuff like Ctrl+R to get the run command or Windows Key and Pause to get the system info up.
Which ones do you use ALL of the time?
I'm only asking because I might find some of them useful if I don't know them.

CRTL + C - Copy
CRTL + X - Cut
CRTL + V - Paste
CRTL + Z - Undo
Windows + L - Lock Screen

I live from the Run dialog, so for me it's Win+R. Secondly I usually have a lot of apps open, so switching between them is as quick as Alt+Tab. The way I organise my Start menu also means I use the Win key to bring up the menu and then start typing letters for my apps.

Huh, I do Windows+D for this... silly Microsoft ^_^
Windows+Break for System Info is one I like.
Also CTRL+SHIFT+ESC for Task Manager

Windows + M minimises everything but Windows + D is the equivalent of show desktop so pressing that a second time also restores everything.

I thought that it went like this:

I also use Win + L : lock more often than not
Another favorite of mine is Win + E : brings up a new windows explorer window at the my computer level

I didn't know about the Win+M, I've always used Win+D.
Another shoutcut is ALT + SHIFT +PRINT SCREEN to turn High Contrast colour scheme off after a pupil has worked out how to turn it on :P

ALT-F4 is always a good'un...
Windows-Pause comes in handy too.
