    alt + tab -> switch between tasks without the click of a mouse button.

    windows + D -> Show Desktop.

    windows + R -> opens the run window.

    windows + E -> opens windows explorer.

    ctrl + backspace -> delete an entire word behind the cursor.

    ctrl + shift + T -> accidentally closed a tab? This trick will reopen the most recently closed tab.

    ctrl + T -> open a new tab.

    ctrl + W -> close current tab.

    ctrl + shift + N -> To open Google Chrome in Incognito mode.

    ctrl + shift + R -> clear cache.

    ctrl + D -> add bookmarks.

    ctrl + shift + D -> bookmark all open tabs.

    For Gmail:

    c -> compose a new email

    r -> reply to an email.

    f -> forward the email.

    n -> move to the next message.

    p -> move to the previous message.

    OneTab -> a Google Chrome extension that stores all your open tabs in a single tab. Saves RAM usage and saves YOU from getting lost in the gazillion tabs that were open.

    F2 -> Rename a file without using right-click.

    ctrl + F -> find a word in a document/web-page.

    Snipping tool -> to capture part of a screen.

    Task Manager -> monitor the open tasks, processes, RAM usage and end tasks that are not responding.

    Note: Most of the tricks are mentioned for Google Chrome and Windows OS, some may work on Mac OS as well by replacing ctrl with cmd. Will certainly keep adding if I happen to use some more.
