Common Software Shortcuts
There are many keyboard shortcuts that are commonly available in many applications. Using the keyboard shortcut to accomplish a task is quicker since the user doesn’t have to spend the time clicking in multiple menus to complete the task at hand. For example, pressing the Alt key and the S key at the same time will save data. This is generally displayed in instructions as “Alt + S.” Pressing “Ctrl + C” will copy data (can be text, a picture, table, etc.). Pressing “Ctrl +V” will paste the copied data. Printing is another common task that has a shortcut. “Ctrl + P” will print your document. Keyboard shortcuts can be the ultimate timesaver if the user remembers & knows how to use them.
