Whadda ya' know?

So, we all have our little shortcuts on the PC.

Most people know cut, copy, paste, undo.

A few I've learned recently, is clicking with the mouse wheel in Firefox and IE7 will open a link in a new tab. And if you mouse wheel click on a tab, it will close it.

F2 will place the cursor into the cell in Excel. Ctrl-(arrow key) will take you to the blank space in a row or collumn of data. (Or if you're on a blank space, it'll take you to the next cell with data.

I'm sure most know the beauty that is ALT-TAB.

In a browser you can change the text size by CTRL-(rotate mouse wheel up or down).
