When I’m using a computer, I like to get things done quickly and efficiently. If my hands are on the keyboard, I don’t want to move one to the mouse if I don’t have to. Luckily there’s some great keyboard shortcuts you can use to make life easier.
- ALT+TAB = Switches between running programs.
- CTRL+TAB = Switches between tabs within a program.
- ALT+F4 = Closes the program you’re in.
- CTRL+F4 = Closes the current window but not necessarily the program.
- F1 = Launches Help! It’s generally contextual, you get help for the program and window that you’re in.
- CTRL+c = Copy
- CTRL+v = Paste
- CTRL+x = Cut
- CTRL+b = Bold
- CTRL+u = Underline
- CTRL+i = Italics
Many of the shortcuts use the “Windows” key in combination with other keys. That’s the key near your space bar with the flag on it.
- Windows Key by itself = Opens the Start Menu. Alternate=ctrl+esc.
