ALT+X to execute batches, but I am trying to move to CTRL+E

However CTRL+K, CTRL+U or CTRL+K, CTRL+C for commenting/uncommenting are way up there for me as well.

One more: Ctrl-F2, when cursor is positioned on object name in sql editor -> will locate (focus) that object in Object Explorer. You will need SSMSBoost add-in for that.

In sql editor F2, when cursor is positioned on object name. That opens definition of the object (scripts it in new window). But you will need SSMSBoost add-in for that ( www.ssmsboost.com)
