    This is so freaking cool, someone should make a page with all the known shortcuts that they know that'll be cool.

    In Windows

    The wheel and buttons on a mouse can usually be programmed to do different tasks.
    Using Windows, click the little desktop icon next to the Start button to show the desktop.
    You can drag the status bar to the top or side of your screen if you don't like it at the bottom.
    If you download TweakUI, you can change bunches of different settings, for example, minimizing or eliminating the shortcut arrow on icons.
    Add shortcuts to the Send To folder and they'll pop up under the Send To... menu item when you right click a folder or icon

    "Windows Key" and "M" minimises all your open windows. Kind of show desktop,

    and "Windows Key" and "R" opens up the run command box
    and "Windows Key" and "E" should open up WIndows Explorer.
    and "Windows Key" and "F" should open up the find thing.

    Can't think of any more at the moment.

    Just found out that in win XP you press windows key plus L and it logs you out.
