What are shortcuts and why you should use them?

A keyboard shortcut is a combination of keys that, when pressed simultaneously, perform some task that ordinarily requires use of a mouse or other input device and may take longer to do. Some reasons you should use them are:

  • Save time: Avoid reaching for the mouse to do simple and repetitive tasks. Learn the shortcut for that action and be more efficient and productive.
  • Multitasking: Once you know them and use it regularly you will be able to easily navigate through your tasks and resolve them quickly.
  • Health: Yes, it can help you prevent RSI (Repetitive Syndrome Injury). Many people develop RSI by doing a repetitive task– like resting the heel of your palm on the desk and raising your fingers to use the mouse.
