    I could be wrong, but I don't think I've seen a thread with a comprehensive list of keyboard combinations and shortcuts anywhere for the Motorala Droid, so I thought I'd share the ones I know of and if anyone has anymore, feel free to add to this thread.

    Here's a list of the ones I know:

    brings up the recover menu

    Holding X while rebooting, then Vol up+camera on recovery screen:

    This is awsome. I am a physical keyboard user and these shortcuts will surely help.

    Good list! I learned a few things.

    However...I feel the need to point out that you can change the "Search+(letter) key" functions by going into the "Quick Launch" section under Settings>Applications.

    Also, I dunno about everyone else, but "Alt+Q" just gives me the number 1.
