on Desktop ALT+Mouse Scroll is to resize icons!
Many of these already exist in previous versions of windows if im not mistaken. I'm a bit miffed though because there's no shortcuts for shutdown, restart or hibernate... as far as i can tell. everytime i press Windows,U,U, start menu searches for files starting with the letter "U".
Closet to the function you require ming is Alt+F4 on the desktop
Yeay I kept doing that for days when I first got Vista! I've finally got used to it not working now though. Anyone know if there's any way to change the sleep button on the start menu into a shut down button, or do I need to use the extra menu every time?
How much power does that sleep mode use anyway?
To change the Sleep button to ShutDown Start>Control Panel>Power Options> Then find the power plan you're using, and select Change Settings, then go to Advanced settings and in the dialogue that appears, go to Power buttons and lid, then change the entry for the Start button to Shut Down, OK all boxes.
I'm at school so trying to remember this off the top of my head so names might differ slighty, but it's there
Awesome! Thanks for the tip. Reps are on their way
No prob Found that in my Vista magazine lol, Also if OneNote 2007 is installed Windows Key+S will create a screenshot that the user defines much like the Snipping Tool, though OneNote needs to be running in the notification area for it to work. Also change the setting under Screen Clipping Defaults to "Copy to Clipboard Only", at its most useful that way
Here's another rather exhuastive list: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/2503b91d-d780-4c80-8f08-2f48878dc5661033.mspx
