    I'm really fond of doing keyboard tricks when Im using Windows. Now that Im on Leopard at home, there are thousands of tricks in OS X leopard. I love Quicksilver too. Why don't we guys share tips and tricks that are sometimes not shared by some. Im sure some of us here would appreciate.

    Here's my share: I think this is old already but found it myself.

    By minimizing all applications in one click and not using the "-" button to minimize them beside the Trash icon. While an application is active, Hit Option+Command then click the desktop. This will hide all applications within its app icon.

    By pressing Ctrl+Shift+Eject will put your screen into black without putting your computer to sleep.

    You can actually drag an alias directly to stacks from application folder.

    I would love to hear yours too. Thanks

    Sorry, but I believe here's an existing thread about this topic.

    OS X Tips are also being discussed there.
