Keyboard shortcuts

Every once in a while, you come across something that saves you a few steps every time you do something, and it is so simple, you don't understand why you didn't know about it before. I remember the first time I found out about the [CTRL] + M shortcut. EUREKA! It saves so much time and actually helps me get a lot done, because I can jot off the message when I think about it, without regard to what else I'm doing in Notes at the time.

Below are some of my favorites. I've even included the obvious one's that are Windows standards, because just last week, someone reminded me of the [CTRL] + O shortcut.
