Share YOUR Favorite Keyboard Shortcuts

I’m always amazed at how surprised computer users become when they learn about a keyboard shortcut. A keyboard shortcut is a combination of keys that you press on your keyboard to perform a particular function. If you learn them and practice them, they can shave hours off of the tedious maneuvering of the mouse.

These are my favorite and most used computer keyboard shortcuts:

Alt + TAB Switch between Open Windows
Windows key + E Open Internet Explorer
Windows key + M Minimize all windows and show the desktop
Ctrl + C Copy
Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert Paste
Arrow keys To scroll pages and place my cursor
TAB Move between form fields (boxes)
F2 Rename a file or folder
Ctrl + F Usually on the web to search for a word on a page
Windows key + R Open the Run Command

Here are a couple more tips that we have on the site regarding keyboard shortcuts; Windows Key & Extra Keys.
