The one I use the most is F8, to open the Object Explorer. I think it should be modified so that if it opens in "pinned" mode, pressing F8 again will close it.

OK I know the question said SSMS, but EM + QA was the 'old' SSMS!

Prior to SQL2005 CTRL + B would grab focus of the divide line between query editor window and results window, and you could move it up and down with cursor keys. Still miss it!
