Hold ALT and click TAB to switch between windows, useful for games.

is there a maximize command (the button between minimize and close) that uses control or something? like to close a windows you can hit "alt + f + x" or you could simply hit "alt + f4", is there a combo key for maximize?

There are a number of windows key shortcuts:

Win+E - opens explorer
Win+D - minimize all windows
Win+M - minimize current window

Not sure if there's a maximise one though, try out other combinations.
