Tip: assign your own shortcut keys

Go to any shortcut icon, rightclick and choose "properties". Click in the 'shortcut' field and actually enter what you'd like to be the shortcut from now on. Click OK and you're done.

Be careful not to use anything that might already be in use. I use ctrl-alt-p for Photoshop, ctrl-alt-c for calculator, ctrl-alt-f for freecell (essential), etc.

You can do the same thing on a Mac, but some kind Mac user will need to do the translation for us.

Doesn't it feel like the more you learn the dumber you feel? I guess that's what makes this monster program so fun. Always something new to discover just when you think you've learned it all.

Speaking of Notepad, have you ever heard of Notespad.
It is like but better, you can have 10 favorites visible on tabs to click, and many options, just search Google for Notespad, I'm sure it's a freebee.

Great tip, Greg. I found it and have been using it for a couple of weeks now. You're right, it's much better than plain old Notepad. Thanks for mentioning it!

Apple Menu, Control Panels, Keyboard

Select Function Keys, and then program any of the F1 through F15 keys to open an application. The more inventive among you can print a template (available in some programs already, I think in Illustrator) to place over your function keys until it becomes no longer necessary.

Additionally, the more recent versions of the OS have a "tear off" menu that floats above all open windows and shows all open applications. Clicking on the menu (which is customizable as to display proportions and icon or full name view) switches you to that application.
