Do you know any of the general keyboard shortcuts when editing a lot, such things as cutting and pasting in Windows?

Question

I read the question "Do you know any of the general keyboard shortcuts when editing a lot, such things as cutting and pasting in Windows?" There is another one that I use all the time and is hard to find --- <ctrl><f6> which switches to the next open file in programs that support multiple open files like Excel. Really handy.
