Two Performance Monitor Shortcuts

Two undocumented Performance Monitor keystrokes make the utility more useful. You can use Ctrl+H to highlight a particular counter—which is useful if you are monitoring many counters. You can use Ctrl+G to toggle the legend (i.e., the bottom half of the screen that displays the counters and instances). Toggling off the legend lets you see more of the counters in Chart View.
