Shortcuts in Mac OS X and Windows 7

A new year means a new way of looking how can you be more productive with your Macintosh.

Macintosh Keyboard shortcuts I use a lot:
Option key = During startup lets you choose the boot volume
C key – During startup lets you boot from the CD/DVD drive
Command+Tab = Cycle through open Applications
Command+I = Get info (in the Finder only)
Command+W = Close active window
Option+Eject = Eject 2nd CD/DVD drive
Option+Command+Eject = Puts Mac to sleep
Command+Shift+3 = Print screen to the Clipboard
Command+Shift+4= Print screen Range to the Clipboard

If you are forced to use Windows (like I am for my favorite online game and a few Graduate course requrements like MS Access, Visio, and Project) knowing a few shortcuts helps. Some of the Windows 7 shortcuts I use include (Windows Logo Key (aka WK)):
WK+D = See the Desktop/Again to hide the Desktop
WK+Left/Right = Move the windows to either the left or right side of the monitor
WK+(+/-) = Zoom in or out
WK+Up/Down = Maximize or Minimize the active window
WK+Tab = Cycle between open windows
WK+E = Open Computer
CTRL + Tab = cycle through tabs in a window
Alt-Tab = Cycle between open applications

My favorite Windows shortcut is – quickly getting back into my beloved Mac OS X through Boot Camp’s Applet (right click).
