what are keyboard shortcuts to resize window,switch desktop etc

Hi I installed DSL a couple of days ago & am amazed at its running speed but I don't know keyboard shortcuts to minimize,maximize window or switch desktop,run applications(like alt+f2 in gnome based distros).Because i think keyboard is faster & easier than mouse.

It looks like DSL uses Fluxbox as the window manager, in which case your keybindings will be available in ~/.fluxbox/keys (correct me if I'm wrong).
You can see the existing bindings, and add your own, they look like this:
Mod4 x :Exec xterm
Mod1 F1 :Workspace 1
There's more details in the fluxbox website:
