...Thanks for the contribution.
...Some handy strokes.
...I copied the page to my hard drive.
...I opened it in a text editor.
...I deleted everything that I did not need, things I already knew.
...I added a few special key combos I had assigned, ones which I want to use.
...My simplified page, modified from your good idea, was quickly ready.
...From my browser, I chose it as my opening page.
...This allowed me to see it briefly at each browser opening.
...It was handy for me, helping me to learn, as well as making the yet unlearned key strokes easily accessible with a tab opening, if I chose.

...Anyhow, thanks for the helpful offering..;- )

Put above list together for my own reference initially and thought I'd share. Super Key is the terminology used in Mint for water is otherwise known as the "Windows" key. These are the default keyboard short-cuts on Mint 17 - Cinnamon.

@ericvictor66 I knew that but the average Win user only knows "Windows" key. and there is a dozen or so actions that are listed without the corresponding key.
Once the list is completed it will be quite useful

"Super" key = "Windows" key between "Ctrl" & "Alt"

Nice list but it is rather incomplete.
There are a large number of shortcuts that are not listed with keys.
What is the "Super" key?
Fix that and it will be a useful list for many.
