    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.
