Was hoping it'd have my personal favorite:

CTRL + Shift + ESC brings up your Task Manager (you know, that window you're always having to open when a program crashes and goes unresponsive)

 Alt+F10, pops up the right click menu on a file
Win+E, opens up Windows Explorer
Win+R, opens up the run dialog
ctrl+esc, opens up the start menu

Those are all good ones.

 Whoops, also forgot Win+D - hides all your windows and shows the desktop - even when you can't minimize a window.

Kind of common ones, but they are still pretty cool. They're useful though, I have to give you that.

Hey, I want you to give me back my 41 seconds. You guaranteed me that I would find something that I would find useful! Well, there were useful ones in there but they were common ones that I already knew.
