Keyboard Shortcuts for Server Manager in Windows Server 2012

Microsoft did a great job with Server Manager in Windows Server 2012. It is truly a cross-server enterprise-scope tool. Server Manager does a great job of managing both the Server Core and GUI-based versions of Windows Server 2012 individually or in groups. It mostly uses PowerShell, which means you can write the PowerShell commands yourself of course.

For those of us who prefer a GUI management console, keyboard shortcuts to various Server Management components are useful. Many of the keyboard shortcuts are both unique to Server Manager and different than Windows Server 2008.

Here are my favorites:
