Chromebook keyboard shortcuts

Last year, I replaced my Android tablet with an Acer i3 Chromebook. It was one of my best technology moves of the year. I love the form factor, keyboard, built-in SSH, screen, external ports, and ability to run a native Linux distro in paravirtual machine. The only thing I didn't like about the keyboard was that is was missing a DELETE key. The fix for that is a keyboard shortcut:

Take a screenshot with Ctrl+[show windows].

The show windows button looks like a window with two vertical bars after it. Screenshots are saved to your Downloads directory with the date and time as PNG files.

Here are more keyboard shortcuts from OMG Chrome.
