Basic keyboard shortcuts

Ctrl-Enter opens a small chat line at the bottom of the screen. This is more discreet than the huge chat window that normally blocks your view and it shows you more of what you're typing at one time. However the downside is that you can only use it to type chat-bubble chats.

Ctrl-R Makes you run automatically.

Ctrl-G takes all bubbles, names, icons and other clutter off the screen so you can get that awesome screen shot you've been wanting.

Alt-PrntScrn stores a screen shot in memory so you can paste it into Paint or some other program. If you save you'll want to use .PNG file type so you keep the full quality of the shot. Jpg in Windows Paint will make your screen shot look fuzzy.

Ctrl-Arrow moves your cursor around the screen. If you're stuck with a bad mouse this might do in a pinch but I don't recommend it unless you're a keyboard whiz.

Ctrl-Spacebar selects whatever on-screen item is highlighted at the time.

R - Let's you reply quickly to the last person that private messaged you without having to pick them from your friend list and click reply from the menu.

Q - Shows your quests

The rest of the keyboard shortcuts are pretty well know. I hope you find these tips helpful.
