As you advance your computer skills you will prefer less interaction with the mouse. There are tons of shortcuts you can use on your keyboard to limit back and forth from keyboard to mouse. So you can work more efficiently, here are a few shortcuts I use daily.
Spacebar – When browsing the web, use the space bar to go down a page
F2 – With a file selected use F2 to quickly rename it
PrtScr – This button will copy the entire screen. Use the Edit menu and Paste the picture to an email or image editor for a fast screen shot
CTRL + C (hold the CTRL button and tap C) – Will copy text for you to paste elsewhere (text must be highlighted first)
CTRL + V – Pastes your copied text to the area you have selected
CTRL + F – Find text on a page
ALT + TAB – Cycle through your open programs
Windows Key + D – Minimizes all screens so you can see your desktop instantly
ALT + F4 – Closes the open window
Delete – Everyone uses backspace, but do you use the delete key? It does the same thing as backspace but from the left side of the cursor instead of the right. Try it!
Windows + L – Quickly lock your computer
