Ctrl+Alt+Up/Down/Left/Right are not standard Windows hotkeys, they are part of the ATI Catalyst software.

This list is fantastic! I thought I knew all the Windows hotkeys, but I stand corrected. WIN-L is a new one to me, and very helpful at work when called by the boss. :wink:

Two more hotkey combos that don't seem to appear within the first 8 pages is ALT-DownArrow and ALT-UpArrow. When the current selection is a drop-down list box, ALT-DownArrow opens the list, which is then navigable with the Up/Down keys. ALT-UpArrow closes the list, and in most instances the drop-down field remains active and the Up/Down keys will continue moving through the list selections.

And although it's not exactly a hotkey, another useful keystroke is ANY letter or number key when a drop-down box is selected. It will go to the first selection that begins with that letter/number. Repeating the keystroke will scroll through the selections in the list beginning with the same letter/number. When the final selection is reached, it will search from the beginning. I found it much easier, since moving to Texas, to tab to the "state" field and hit T twice instead of clicking open the drop-down, scrolling to *near* the bottom, finding TX, and then clicking it.

Wow. Thanks, everyone!

I knew a lot of these, but didn't realize how many there really were.

I am one of those who prefers to be free from the mouse. Just the sight of the mouse pad below the keyboard on my Dell laptop makes the tendons in my hands begin to ache.

You are heroes--all of you!

If this becomes big enough and you deem it useful, consider making it a sticky)

Ok, I'll keep an eye on it.

Win + B: Activate system tray. (Note: Arrow keys select, Enter double-clicks, and AppsKey or Shift + F10 right-clicks.)

Great info.

Sorta Correct. Actually a number of display drivers have them including higher end Intel drivers. They are made for laptops and for monitors you can swivel.

Best description for these keys is :
Ctrl+Alt+<cursor key>
Where <cursor key> is the direction you want 'up' to be.

Hi - does anyone know the hotkey that replaces right-clicking of a mouse?

Or you simply press the Appskey-Key. It's on your keyboard the key left to your right Ctrl-key.
