    Apparantly, it is a newsletter that you need to select and have emailed to you.

    The one that is the title of this thread is prechecked on that webpage, with the text from the quote box above next to it. You can either select of not select other "tech reports" then scroll down to enter your name and email address to have the reports emailed to you.

    Just as a note regarding the edit I made above: nikanthpromod originally included what appeared to be the entire "tech report" contents in the first post. A full copy of someone else's content could be a copyright violation, so, I edited it down to the preview description alone. If people want to see the contents of that website's reports, they should request them via that site and not post them in their entirety on another website (like this one).

    The mouse is so much better than a touch-screen - hate them.

    Haven't read the article, but the ones I often use and find really helpful (other than the FN keys)...

    1. Windows+E
    2. Alt+Tab
    3. Ctrl+C/V/X
    4. Ctrl+T/W (tabbed web-browsing)
    5. Windows
    6. Ctrl+left/right key
    7. Ctrl+Shift+left/right key
    8. F2 (MS Excel)
    9. Alt+F4
    10. Menu key

    Keyboard shortcuts really save time!

    Those who used keyboard shortcuts in Win9x days will remember the tips.txt file that came with the OS. Too bad Microsoft stopped updating these tips, but they have them archived in a KB article. They include those mentioned by dawgg:

    Windows 95 Tips.txt File Contents
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/135893

    If you haven't used these, you might consider the tip:

    ------------------------------
    [Hotkey]
    In Windows 95, hotkeys assigned to shortcuts in the Start Menu or
    its subfolders can be used to start programs any time.
    ------------------------------

    This also works on Win2K and WinXP. Someone might check to see if this works in Win 7.

    There are many ways to quick-launch something, but this is built in to the OS.

    All you have to do is create a folder for shortcuts somewhere in your Start Menu Folder. Then, put shortcuts to programs and folders there.

    When you look at the Properties box of a shortcut, there is an entry for Shortcut Key:

    shortcut_a.gif

    You can use CTRL + ALT or CTRL + SHIFT followed by a letter. That keystroke combination will start your program.

    You can also use this to open a particular folder:

    shortcut_p.gif

    Once set up, it's a quick way to start things with a keystroke combo.
