I'm loving Google Desktop these days.  The first couple of versions they came out with were garbage, but they have really cleaned up the performance of the indexing engine.  If you uninstalled Google Desktop like me because it was pegging out your CPU, try it again now.  It's much better.  Here are some shortcuts that I use on a daily basis:

1) Pressing Ctrl twice on your keyboard will bring up a search box.  From there you can type in your search phrase and it will search your desktop and google.com.

2) In that search box, you can also type in \\servername or \\serverIP and it will open that computer in Windows Explorer.
