Reposted from my journal, because I can't get over how helpful this is. It has been very slightly edited for the more linux-savvy audience here, but I probably still over-explain things :o)

I'm not talking about using keyboard shortcuts to copy/paste, print, rename folders/files, and all that. I'm talking about using keyboard shortcuts to open often-used folders and files. Why didn't anyone tell me about this? It's only the most brilliant thing EVER!!

Like, most of this post was composed in a specific plain-text document, which I can open from anywhere by hitting Alt+P. The minute I think of something I'd like to post on, I don't have to go online and find my draft post at DW, or open some program. I can just hit Alt+P, type out my thoughts, hit Ctrl+S to save and Alt+F4 to close. My fingers never have to leave the keyboard!

It can also be used for sneaksy things, like hiding folders you don't want people to trip over (like e.g. I hide my fandom folder). But in the olden days, hiding folders also meant more time spent finding them, yourself. Now I can open my fandom folder by the mere hitting of two keyboard keys. Have I mentioned how brilliant this is??

Ubuntu how-to, can doubtlessly be tailored to work in your OS )
