Nice hot keys

From the "60 Essential Keyboard Shortcuts Every Office Worker Should Know" I knew many already and don't need many others, but here are a few I found quiet intersting and useful:

I actually didn't know those Excel commands; those'll come in handy.

Super(Windows)+ left or right will snap the window to left or right. Up = maximize, down...
In explorer: ctrl+l will select the path just like f6 does in browsers

Thanks for those short cuts. I haven't used them before and the ones with the tabs are very useful.

The Excel one I use a lot is to use Ctrl D to repeat the content of the cell above in the cell below.

Ctrl + p to print
Ctrl + s to save

Win + d for desktop
Win + e for explorer
Win + r, then cmd to start a command prompt

[super] + n ( where n is the number of the icon in your taskbar )

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V for copy and paste but maybe they are too obvious. Ctrl+X for cut, although not as important, can also be useful and should be mentioned for the sake of completeness.
Ctrl+Z for undo is another key combination people should know about. To redo (i.e. undo your undoing) you can use Ctrl+Y, or sometimes Ctrl+Shift+Z.

When it comes to web browsers I find the following shortcuts useful.
Ctrl+T - Open new tab
Ctrl+F4 - Close current tab (not to be confused with Alt+F4)
Ctrl+L - Activate the URL bar
Ctrl+K - Activate the search bar
