IDE keyboard shortcuts become second nature to developers. So much so, that we expect them to work everywhere. Like ctrl-C does. What shortcuts do you find yourself trying to use where they don't work?
For me, I'm always trying to delete or move lines with the Visual Studio ctrl-l (delete line), and alt-[arrow] (move line up or down) in things like Word.
I remap a lot of the VS keystrokes to things I like better, like Ctrl+G (for Go) for run without debug, and Ctrl+D for debug. Whenever I'm helping someone else, I have to remember the default keystrokes. Not that hard, but annoying. One of the reasons pair programming doesn't work, IMO.
Strangely enough it doesn't do anything useful in Word!

One thing that irritates me enormously is that in Outlook 365, which I have to use at work, Ctrl + F means something different than Find. All Microsoft products interpret this as Find, but not Outlook 365 for some strange reason …
In Eclipse it means: find-next. In VS it does nothing (except that small message about waiting the second keystroke)... However if I do not realize my mistake and hit it again I set a bookmark... Now Ctrl+K, F3 is invalid, so I already at 3 hits...
