 Keyboard shortcut to maximize/minimize/restore windows

I'm trying to learn as many key shortcuts as I can, but I can't find one for
maximizing or minimizing windows.  Is there one?

Thanks!

or F10

Cool. This is a new one to me.

Actually, the Windows key will open the Start menu, the same as Ctrl+Esc.
The Menu key opens the context menu (or Shift+F10, which you mentioned).
