Cool XP Tricks: Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are one of the fastest ways to perform actions and commands.
Your XP has several shortcuts. You probably know some, like Ctrl+C (copy) and Ctrl+V (paste), but are you aware of the more advanced commands such as minimizing all windows (WinKey+M or WinKey+D) when you need something from your desktop, or Winkey+E when you need to open My Computer fast?
