    Thanks to all for lists and additions.

    Alt/F4 while on desktop brings up Shutdown/Restart/Sleep/Sign Out/Switch User menu. One may arrow through that menu for selection.

    F4 in IE brings down recent Favorites and recent History drop down menu.

    + Q in my 8.1 is search using the “Everything” search scope, not apps. There is no Apps option on that menu. Is it Apps in 8? I don’t remember.

    + Ctrl + F + Starts the Find a Computer on the Network dialog

    Here something that’s interesting that would help a user in trouble > Settings > Power > Click on power then holding down shift key click on restart brings up the advanced boot menu. Works with keyboard or mouse.
