Essential Keys

From the post:

I often wonder how ‘IT Professionals’ get away with what they do without being able to execute the simplest computer tasks. Seeing a 200$/hour consultant fiddling with the mouse cursor, repeatedly missing keys and taking seemingly endless minutes just to log in to a Siebel application makes me cringe.

So I decided to post the obvious: Some basic keystrokes which every IT pro should be able to reproduce. This is just a basic list, please feel free to use the comments to expand it.

Wonder if there needs to be a series of one-page “tests” for IT consultant’s? Turning these tasks into questions would be one. Simple SQL tasks would be another. Same could be done for topic maps as well.
