So you're familiar with Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-X (cut, also a handy one) but what about Ctrl-Z?
Ctrl-Z is the undo command, a must in any designers toolbox. But what's really special about Ctrl-Z is it's versatility. I only discovered it's true capability from implementing it in a variety of programs by force of habit. Just some of the programs you can use it in include:
Adobe Products (Adobe Photoshop's Ctrl-Z functionality is restricted to one undo)
Microsoft Office Products
and many other applications!
Other Handy Shortcuts
Ctrl-Y redo. One I have only found out from researching this post, so it will be interesting to see how fluent I get with it.
Ctrl-S for saving is another great one I do automatically now without realising.

So keyboard shortcuts are very useful once you have a use for it, and Ctrl-Z is a particularly good substitute for the back key considering it's ease, and cross-functionality across programs.
