  1. Ctrol +K might just change my life. Thanks for the tips!!!

  2. Thanks Karen! There are a couple shortcuts in your list that are new to me and I'll definitely use (esp. window docking and ctrl-shift to select text). One of my other new favorites is Shift-Ctrl-V - in Chrome/Gmail it will "Paste as plain text". Ctrl-0 (zero) is also helpful to quickly return a web browser to 100% size.
