Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts to Make Your Life Easier

Ok, admit it.  How many of you would much rather hit ALT+ [some key] vs. taking the mouse, clicking File, then some other menu item and maybe a sub-menu item to get your work done?  C’mon, you know you do.  All of us have our favorite keyboard shortcuts we use, whether it is CTRL+C for copy or CTRL+V for paste or Windows+Tab for the cool preview sort or anything else.  The question is, are you utilizing all of the keyboard shortcuts you can or should be using?  What if there are others that you are not aware of and using today?  Or, dare I say it, you could create your own to open programs you use often?
