Even more about keyboard shortcuts

So far in the first 2 blogs about keyboard shortcuts, I provided information about specific shortcuts such as cut, copy and paste. Now some generic information about shortcuts.

Have you ever noticed that in many dropdown list in a menu, to the right of the command such as Edit>Cut there is Ctrl+X in this case? Yep, that's the keyboard shortcut for that command. I was teaching a class yesterday and mentioned this to the 2 attendees and they both were surprised that they had "never seen that before".

If you tend to do the same thing over and over again like Edit>Find you may just remember Ctrl+F. You may also find the command you learn in one application is really more generic and works in many applications such as Ctrl+F for Find...

Happy Shortcutting

Open - Ctrl + O
Save- Ctrl + S
Print- Ctrl + P
New - Ctrl + N

Give these a try!

Welcome to PC Applications Blog! I will post tid bits of information from time to time relating to working with Windows or MS Office applications. Having worked with Microsoft applications for over 20 years I have a few things to say. Otherwise check out our website www.pcappplications.com for all of our services. Well with out further adou...here's the first tip...

Sometimes learning keystrokes to get something done can be more efficient than grabbing your mouse and clicking or even right clicking to use the shortcut menu as it as called. My favorites are: cut (ctlr+x), copy (ctrl+c) and paste (ctrl+v). These can be used even if you do not have access to a menu or shortcut menu (like in a dialog box, eg). Give it a try!
