And heres my second one!
Keyboard Shortcuts!
Not many people know that many, but they can actually save alot of time!
So here are the best shortcuts i know:

Windows Key + R = Opens the Run Menu

And this is usually followed by:

cmd = Command Prompt
iexplore + "web address" = Internet Explorer
compmgmt.msc = Computer Management
dhcpmgmt.msc = DHCP Management
dnsmgmt.msc = DNS Management
services.msc = Services
eventvwr = Event Viewer
dsa.msc = Active Directory Users and Computers
dssite.msc = Active Directory Sites and Services
Windows key + E = Explorer

ALT + Tab = Switch between windows

ALT, Space, X = Maximize window

CTRL + R = Refreshes Internet Page or F5

CTRL + Shift + Esc = Task Manager

Windows key + Break = System properties

Windows key + F = Search

Windows key + D = Hide/Display all windows

CTRL + C = copy

CTRL + X = cut

CTRL + V = paste

Also don't forget about the "Right-click" key next to the right Windows key on your keyboard. Using the arrows and that key can get just about anything done once you've opened up any program.

[Alt] + [Esc] =Switch between running applications

[Ctrl] + [Esc] =Open Program Menu

[Ctrl] + [F4] =Close active document or group windows (does not work with some applications)

[Alt] + [F4] =Quit active application or close current window

[Alt] + [-] =Open Control menu for active document

[F1] =Open Help for active application

Windows+M =Minimize all open windows

Shift+Windows+M =Undo minimize all open windows

Windows+F1 =Open Windows Help

Windows+Tab =Cycle through the Taskbar buttons

Windows+Break =Open the System Properties dialog box

NUM LOCK+ASTERISK....... on numeric keypad (*) Display all subfolders under the selected folder.

NUM LOCK+MINUS SIGN....... on numeric keypad (-) Collapse the selected folder.
