Windows Explorer Shortcuts

Here are handy shortcuts built into Windows Explorer which can have similar characteristics in other programs too.

Alt+ Up will navigate up one folder level since the up arrow on the menu bar was removed in Windows Vista. Alternatively, you can also make Backspace go up one folder level with a handy AutoHotKey script.

Shift+Del a file without sending it to recycle bin, because who wants to empty the recycle bin in any case?

Ctrl+Shift+N creates a new folder in your current directory.
