Alt, f, a
Save_as in most applications

Use the start menu search as well, most applications only require me to type the first 2 letters.

You can also open pretty much any control panel form using the start menu search. Type background and hit enter.

Your pc may need to work the first few times to get indexed, but it's made my life much better using it once done.
