keyboard shortcuts for a better workflow

"One thing I love about Linux is the ability to customize it in every way possible, and one such ability is the possibility of changing keyboard shortcuts. Though the default keyboard shortcuts are always useful when it comes to having a good speed, creating some of my own shortcuts makes my workflow much more efficient. Here are some of the custom shorcuts I use on a daily basis.

"The shorcuts are based on the Alt combo key; mainly because it's right below my thumb hence a lot easier to reach as compared to the Ctrl key, and being a KDE4 user, it's no surprise that the Alt key is the most used key on my keyboard as I use Krunner(Alt+F2) a lot. Now the shortcuts I've set include the Alt key along with an alphabet key to access my most used applications; and, I choose the alphabets in such a way that I never forget the combination. Using Alt+Tab for switching and Alt+F4 for closing applications speeds up things dramatically."
