Dynamics AX Shortcut keys

I was looking out for shortcut keys to switch between Application and Development workspace in AX 2012 which bought me to this msdn website http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa623612.aspx

Since I use AX 4.0, AX 2009 and AX 2012 often, I thought it will be good to consolidate the common shortcuts and bookmark it so I have a one-stop place to come and look at, as my memory with respect to shortcut keys is not so good :-). If you are one like me, I recommend bookmarking this page as your favorites!
