I use the mouse much too freely, and my wrists are not thanking me for it. I have been meaning to try and use the keyboard more as my sole means of navigating Windows, but I am having trouble sticking with it because when I need to do something and I cannot find the right shortcut, I grab the mouse and forget to let go of it again.

Personally, the main software that I need keyboard reference sheets for would be:

  • Firefox
  • Thunderbird
  • Visual Studio
  • Windows itself

But I would encourage more general inclusion of shortcut references in the answers in case anyone else tries to make the same transition I am attempting ;)

What I am looking for is reference material that is as comprehensive as possible so that over time I can hopefully learn to do everything with the keyboard and spare my wrists. Bonus points for references that can be printed in a reasonable size so I can keep them next to my machine in hardcopy.

I know there is an answer for Windows already: Is there a definitive reference for Windows shortcuts keys?, but I am leaving it in my question in case anyone has a better printable alternative.

Please make this a community wiki. – Daniel A. White Jul 15 '09 at 23:53
Switched it over to CW. Topics like this which are open to discussions or lists (i.e. most items that don't have a "correct" answer) should generally be CW. – TheTXI Jul 15 '09 at 23:54
I should have also said that this probably should have been separated into requests for keyboard shortcuts for the different software programs. – TheTXI Jul 15 '09 at 23:57
Thanks for the switch to CW... I honestly keep forgetting to tick the little box... start of "This should be a CW", but then after I add tags, it completely slips my mind. Should the CW selection perhaps be a bit more prominently visible? – jerryjvl Jul 16 '09 at 0:04

Had hoped for a few more people with helpful ones, but I guess I'll just create new specific questions when I run into more programs. Your answer covers my immediate question tho ;) – jerryjvl Jul 18 '09 at 0:22
