Favourite keyboard shortcut

What's your favourite keyboard shortcut?
Maybe one you've recently discovered, no matter how simple and possibly obvious, but use a lot now.

My current ones are
Ctrl+Shift+N - when in a file browser to create a new folder
F2 - rename a file or folder
Ctrl+Shift+L - in Excel to add filters to a row

Ctrl + Shift + N to open new incognito window in Chrome

I 'discovered' last year control +up/down arrow to move quickly to start or end of a text document. The rest of the ones I use mostly are conventional cut/copy/paste keyboard commands, though option-drag in the mac finder is also pretty useful. I've mapped some f-keys in photoshop to run actions.

I like the one where you can hit "shift" five times in a row and Windows will prompt you to if you want to turn Sticky Keys on, which I never do.

The one I use the most is good old Alt-Tab, or WinKey-Tab for showing off. Alt-D seems to be the one which is most like witchcraft for people who don't know it.

Pfft. Alt-Tab is for newbies.

WinKey-[num] gives you instant access to the first ten windows on the taskbar.

If you have ten windows open, you're doing it wrong.

Thanks for that. Might arrange taskbar a bit better to take full advantage.

Which reminds me on Ubuntu (gnome?)
Alt+` - cycles through the windows of your currently focused program. Find this really useful

I must say I like the Windows taskbar where you can preview, select, and close windows from the taskbar.
From: Peter (BOUGHTONP)29 Jan 18:49
Nonsense. It was only yesterday when I probably had over twenty, (spread across three machines and wishing I had more than four screens), and was accessing each one of them frequently.

Probably win+shift+x which toggles my main monitor input between my PC and my Switch so I can play Switch games without having to piss around with my monitor's shitty menus.

A more standard one: ctrl+r for recursive search in shell.

1. That's not exclusive to Windows.

2. You don't have enough windows to forget what's on each one. :P

Ctrl - shift - esc for quick access to task manager and ctrl+win+c which swaps between colour or black and white in Windows 10. Come in quite handy at work that one when people hit it by mistake and have no idea how to change it back.

ctrl-shift-T to unclose a browser tab.

And Ctrl-G to cancel it properly (unlike Esc which populates the command).

I'm tempted to install hstr so it gives more than one match at a time, so it works better for stuff I only half remember.

If you want to screw with people, on some Windows setups, right-side Ctrl-Shift can switch from left-to-right to right-to-left text - easy enough to do in front of them without them catching it, plus you have to use the left-side to undo it. :>

I actually unbind ctrl+g because I hit it a lot when I'm going for ctrl+f. ctrl+c cancels out of it fine.

For most stuff I just use autosuggestions.

I disable the caps LOCK FOR SAME REASON.
From: Lucy (X3N0PH0N)29 Jan 19:59
I make caps lock a ctrl key.
