    Hold down ALT and type the following quickly to get a secret game; fxfighters

    (An old joke to play at n00bs on IRC)

    I use Alt+F4 a lot tho...

    there is more than five (first five in bold)
    win m - minimize window
    alt tab - this one was useful at work when surfing on internet :-)
    ctrl shift - switching between pol and eng keyboard
    ctrl tab - switches between tabs in browser
    ctrl esc - helps to minimize game for a while when win m doesn't work
    alt f4
    ctrl a
    ctrl c
    ctrl v
    ctrl z - useful when you want to undo something you just wrote, done etc
    plus few from word:
    ctrl l
    ctrl r
    ctrl e
    ctrl j
    ctrl b
    ctrl shift > and ctrl shift < - works only in msoffice, not in openoffice

    I use Win+Tab more than Alt+Tab these days... I'm a more visual person, so it helps to have a large view of the app I'm tabbing to, this is why I use it more.

    I agree. When used on a system that'll run it as quickly as ALT+TAB, it makes for easier viewing.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ctrl+Alt+Del

    Started as a way to restart a PC via the keyboard (hardcoded). Microsoft picked this up in the Windows OS to initially do the same, and then to get you to the task manager in later versions...
