Very good post. I think that it is wondeful that a new member is already sharing and trying to help others. I think that a reward is in order. I will give you 50 rep points, which represents 1/2 the points that you will need for a skilled badge.

Since you are new, if you click on User CP at the top of the page, you will be able to see when your threads have been answered and how many rep points you have.

Wow ! I'm flattered.
I just thought it would be handy because info like this is not always readily available with the little information that comes with a laptop or pc.
It can be easily printed out, placed inside a plastic cover and kept handy next to your laptop or pc.
Cheers.

To add some to those with dual display systems:
  • Active window shown on right display: To dock a window to the left half on the right display: WIN + left. One more WIN + left docks the window to the right on left display, WIN + right puts window back to the left on the right display
  • Active window shown on left display: To dock a window to the right half on the left display: WIN + right. One more WIN + right docks the window to the left on right display, WIN + left puts window back to the right on the left display

Thank you!
This is shorter & easier to read than the "The Complete Windows 7 Shortcuts eBook by Nitin Agarwal" from the Windows Club Site.

As you said pin it on the wall then act!
Again Thanks.
