found this list on reddit:
More shortcuts that some don't know: (these have been updated)
SHIFT + DEL deletes something permanently, no recycle bin. (Windows)
CTRL + ENTER opens a folder in a new window. (Windows)
CTRL + ESC opens start menu. (Windows, this works on remote access)
COMMAND + SPACE opens up the spotlight search thing at the top right (Mac)
You can also simple calculations there!
Windows Key + TAB is a cooler version of ALT + TAB (Win7 & Vista)
CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER will run the highlighted program with administrative rights (Win7)
Ex: Start menu -> search "cmd" -> key combination -> cmd as root user!
BACKSPACE goes up a folder when browsing. (Your PC not reddit)
BACKSPACE goes "back" on almost all internet explorers.
fn + BACKSPACE deletes the character after the cursor (Mac, like Windows's Delete)
CTRL + L goes to the address bar on many internet browsers.
F6 also goes to address bar
ALT + ENTER while in address bar opens in new tab, leaving current untouched
CTRL + T opens a new tab.
CTRL + TAB goes to next tab in -> direction
CTRL + # (Number) goes to #'th tab in your browser
CTRL + W closes current tab
CTRL + click opens link in new tab
ALT + click equivalent to right click -> save target as (downloads link location)
CTRL + - zooms out of the web page
CTRL + = zooms into the page (= is the button with + on it)
CTRL + 0 returns original zoom
On mac, these combinations still work, but some are with COMMAND instead of CTRL
COMMAND + right/left jumps to beginning/end (Mac, similar to home/end on Windows)
Here's one VERY few know.
Most keyboard shortcuts everywhere are reversed if you add shift.
ALT + TAB goes -> in list, ALT + SHIFT + TAB goes <-
Backspace goes back in internet browsers, SHIFT + BACKSPACE goes forwards
CTRL + T opens a new tab, CTRL + SHIFT + T re-opens the most recently closed tab
CTRL + TAB goes to -> tab, CTRL + SHIFT + TAB goes to <- tab
TAB goes to next item on page, SHIFT + TAB goes to previous
and so on so forth...
Will update if I find some more.

Edit: (updates)
CTRL + SHIFT + DEL also opens the task manager [KanadaKid19]
