Here's a few of the most popular Windows keyboard tips. These are specifically for use with true Windows keyboards, those that have a key in the bottom row with the Windows trademark symbol.

Press the "Windows" key at the same time as the:

"E" to open Windows Explorer
"R" to open the Run dialog box
"F" to open the Find dialog box
"F1" to open Help
"M" to minimize all open windows
"M" + "Shift" to undo minimize all
"Tab" to cycle through the Taskbar buttons
"Break" to open the System Properties dialog box

Another handy tip is that in most programs, pressing the "Ctrl" key with the "Z" key will undo the last editing action. This is particularly useful when you've just accidently deleted information and you want it back!
