Holding control (ctrl) in a station will automatically move the selected item into the sell or purchase box without dragging.  YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH THIS HAS SAVED ME.

In windowed mode, holding shift to speed up time and then clicking off the window or otherwise alt-tabbing will preserve the sped-up state. I use it for flying to stations across the solar system.

If you are buying a ship that you are not going to pilot, test it in the simulator by pressing U and check how good it fares.

Rally your carriers behind nebulae. The slowing on your fighters is negligible but the slowing effect on big ships who might slip by might mean the difference between losing your carriers and keeping them, by buying your ships enough time to escape.
Hadn't thought of that before, really good one!

Targeting an enemy ship will reveal all damage done to it by allied ships.
