    i seem to learn new hotkeys everyday. you guys probably know a ton. so list your hotkeys!!!

    heres one i just learned and find very useful

    option+command+click on a dock icon and it pulls that up and hides all your other applications that you had running.

    anyone know of a way to hotkey certain folders?

    command + i - to get to info of file or folder (i use that a lot)
    command + j - to adjust the view settings for the folder you're in
    command + k - when you have the finder selected it brings up the connect to server
    command + tab - switch between open apps
    command + shift + 4 - capture a selection of your screen and save it to your desktop
    command + h - hides the open app (this works great in apps like iPhoto that you can't command + w on)

    Someone had to post the ones that everyone knows.

    Force Quit: Command-Option-Escape
    Browse through open apps: Apple-tab
    Eject (selected) drive (Eg. CD-ROM): Command-E

    (They either get saved as .pdf files onto the desktop or to the clipboard as .tiff)
    Fullscreen to desktop: Shift-Command-3
    Fullscreen to clipboard: Shift-Control-Command-3
    Section of screen to desktop: Shift-Command-4
    Section of screen to clipboard: Shift-Control-Command-4

    When you take 'section of screen' screenshots, pressing the space bar will allow you to toggle between rectangle or window mode.

    I accidentally my whole location.
    This isn't directly related to this thread, but I'm really fond of Cocoa Gestures (do a search n Versiontracker for them).

    Combined with Hot Keys makes for a very efficient work environment if you know how to use them right.
