F2    ->  Shortcut to rename
Cntrl + Esc -> same as using the win key, opens the start menu
Cntrl + shift + Esc -> opens the task manager
Cntrl + F4 -> This is used to close tabs in the main application where as alt + f4 closes the whole application
keep SHIFT pressed while inserting a USB or CD with auto boot to skip the auto boot functionality.
