Shortcuts, Leaps and Roundabouts For Your Computer

These days it’s all about getting or doing what we want in as little time as possible.   No one likes to spend more time than they have to on a project.  So, why should you have to spend more time on your PC to accomplish something that you could be doing quicker?  This is why keyboard shortcuts can be so helpful! 


Common Shortcuts Everyday Tasks:

  • Print               Ctrl  +   P 

  • Save               Ctrl  +   S

  • Copy              Ctrl  +   C   (highlight the text/item first)

  • Paste              Ctrl  +   V   (click where you want to put the text/item first)

  • Zoom In        Ctrl  +   +

  • Zoom Out     Ctrl  +   -

  • Home Page  Alt    +   Home  (with your browser open)

  • Open the last tab you closed  Ctrl + Shift + T  (if you closed it accidentally)  

  • To View Browsing History   Ctrl + H



In Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, right click on your start button and you get a complete list of commonly used features such as Control Panel, Task Manager, etc.    In all versions of Windows, when the computer freezes (in most cases), Ctrl + Alt + Delete to bring up the task manager/or a menu to get you to it and stop the process that is causing it to freeze.

Simple commands such as these can make your life a lot easier.  Why not try them out the next time you are on your computer?
