You might find something you can use in this collection of tips from David Pogue. Take a look! These are just examples from a much longer list:

  • You can enlarge the text on any Web page. In Windows, press Ctrl and the plus or minus keys (for bigger or smaller fonts); on the Mac, it’s the Command key and plus or minus.
  • You can also enlarge the entire Web page or document by pressing the Control key as you turn the wheel on top of your mouse. On the Mac, this enlarges the entire screen image.
  • You can tap the Space bar to scroll down on a Web page one screenful. Add the Shift key to scroll back up.

Lots more. (He’s wrong about the recycle bin, though – it doesn’t have to be emptied manually.) And don’t forget the keyboard shortcuts that I wrote up last year.
