Windows 7: I need to know 2 keyboard shortcuts

I need to know 2 keyboard shortcuts

1. Please look at the attachment. I don't know what you call this long box on a web page, with small boxes to select each page you want. Is there a keyboard method to navigate to the different pages here, without using the mouse?

2. In IE or Firefox when a number of tabs are open, how can I switch between pages using the keyboard?

3. If I close one tab accidentally, can I recover it?

Thank you,

Reopen Last Closed Tab

On Firefox, "Ctrl + Shift +T" should reopen the last tab that was closed.

You can keep using that shortcut until there are no more closed tabs to reopen.

Yes, using the 'tab key and enter' works. By using Ctrl+Enter I can open the page in a separate tab too. That way, the mouse curser stays in the page box of the first page, from which I can open more pages when I am through with the open page.

Could you also please tell me, if I have a number of tabs on my screen: 1. How can I navigate among them from the keyboard? 2. How can I close a tab from the keyboard? 3. How do I open a new tab (blank), from the key board?

Thank you,

Ctrl+Tab will shift through open tabs,
Alt+Tab will also show and shift through open tabs
Ctrl+T will open a new tab

Is there a place, here or elsewhere, where I can find out more keyboard shortcuts?

Keyboard shortcuts don't work
I created a keyboard shortcut for my calculator, Control+Alt+C. It only works if the shortcut is also on the desktop. As soon as I delete the desktop shortcut, the keyboard shortcut stops working. I've tried creating other shortcuts and have the same problem. Thanks for any help.
