Most of these hot keys are 7 specific, might want to add that in there some where. The only ones I know off the top of my head that worked in previous versions of Windows are:

* Win+D Show desktop

* Win+R Run

* In browsers CTRL+ENTER adds "www." and ".com" Try it out

* Win+E Opens my computer

To log off I hit win (which opens the start menu) and then double tap L

Same thing to shut down, but with U

Must be using XP? All those do is do a search in Vista and Win7.

In XP Win + L logs you out if you have fast user switching enabled. If it is disabled, then it just locks the machine.

only one i end up using in windows is alt+ctrl+delete+DELETE+DELETE+DELETE+DELETE+DELETE

And why do you need that many instances of Task Manager? ;)

I liked the ctrl+alt+del of Me and backwards. I liked how it halted all processes and other things while the user decided one what to do. Doesn't make for a good multitasking operating system though. You can almost do the same thing in Linux by sending a process the stop signal, but the process can ignore it if it chooses to.
