Why go back and forth from mouse to keyboard when you can do quite a few things on the keyboard. That way, you can work faster. Time is money, right?
Here’s a few ones I use most:
- Ctrl+C: Copy
- Ctrl+V: Paste
- Ctrl+X: Cut
- Ctrl+Z: Undo
- Alt+Tab: Switch between applications
- Windows Key+D: Minimize all windows and view the desktop
In Internet Explorer or Firefox:
- F6: Move cursor selection to the address bar
- Ctrl+Enter: Automatically add http:// and .com before and after whatever word you type
In Windows XP, go to Control Panel > Display Properties > Appearance > Effects, then uncheck “Hide underlined letters for keyboard navigation until I press the Alt key“. Then, wherever you see an underlined letter within Windows (like the menus), just press Alt then the corresponding letter…see?
I dont know why, but I felt compelled to write this since there’s been quite a few friends that I see use the mouse when they don’t have to. You know who you are…
