Hey
Just a general wondering really - I come across things I didn't know my mac could do all the time so I am just wondering what other tricks there are hidden away that people have discovered

alt+shift+k gives you a 

cmd+shift+3 gives you a full screen shot that gets saved straight to your desktop

cmd+shift+4 gives you a selection tool to screen shot a particular area, press the space key to get a camera to take a screen shot of a particular window

just to name a couple while my mind is blank.

Wondering what you found though?

Take a look at this fabulous list for all the shortcuts available, but not so much tricks, like baggss showed, which is cool.

Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts

This is a great page I found when I first got my Mac about 2 months ago. It takes time to get the important ones down but try and learn them if you want, it really improves your efficiency when you're trying to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time.
