Basic Computer Skills - Keyboard Shortcuts

A keyboard shortcut is a key or combination of keys that performs a function. These functions can often be done via some other, more indirect mechanism, such as using a menu, typing a longer command, and/or using a pointing device. By reducing such sequences to a few keystrokes, this can often save the user time, hence "shortcut".
