I actually have two favorite keyboard shortcuts that I use all the time.

When defining a class signature that will implement an interface or abstract class (class something : ISomethingElse),  you can press SHIFT - ALT - F10 then ENTER after you populate the signature and it will populate the needed method signatures for you.  I know it sounds a bit hairy, but you get used to it pretty quickly.

My second favorite is CTRL - TAB to cycle through the open tabs in the IDE.  This also works for any tab control.

Shift + Alt + F10 is nice, but there's an even better one (IMO) for that same function. If you press Ctrl + > (also the period key), it will do the same thing, and the keystroke is less awkward.
