And as I’ve said time and time again on this blog, it’s really the simple things.  I keep forgetting about this tip, until i see this shortcut chord and have to look up what it does.

Window.CloseToolWindow command bound to Shift+ESC

If you want to close the current editor… stay tuned for tomorrow’s tip!
