Speed Up! Using Keyboard Shortcuts




Students often marvel at my use of keyboard shortcuts while working on my classroom computer. Using shortcuts became a necessity when using a mouse began to cause my right wrist to be sore and achy.

My work is speeded up immensely by my use of shortcut keys. Those who are old computer hands (think back to the days of DOS and WordPerfect 5.0!) will remember when using the keyboard was the only way to accomplish things.

What's the best way to learn? My answer takes you to a wonderful learning tool called Microsoft Windows and Applications Shortcut Keys. The site assumes you are a novice and will give you information on not just the "what" but also the "how" of using your keyboard.

Ready to speed up? Make it a point to learn one new shortcut each day and see your computing work completed in record time!
