Windows Key + S :

As I specified earlier, I list some simple and handy shortcuts that are useful for Windows supported PC’s.

In Windows 7, it results in starting a Snipping Tool, which usually manages to catch pictures on any section or of entire screen at that moment. But, in Windows 8 and later versions, Windows Key + S gives you the search bar. If you want to find Internet explorer, type Internet and you get suggestions from the search bar. You can search similarly in Windows 7 too, but the shortcut used in there is just Windows Key.

Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V::Cut, Copy, Paste:

These are the most used shortcuts in every PC user life. If you don’t know these, then either you are a new user or else something crazy. So, Ctrl+C represents to copy the selected content from your PC, whereas Ctrl+V represents to Paste and Ctrl+X represents to Cut a text or something from your PC to Clipboard of your system. In my opinion, these three shortcuts alone can save many hours of your Life. These actions can also be accessed by using right-click of your mouse too.

Ctrl+F::Search Current Folder or Page:

This is to find a word or something similar to the word you want to search. You can do this thing in folder search or Webpage Search or any other Application Oriented Search. This Ctrl+F helps you many times to find a Keyword that you are searching for.
