Keyboard Shortcuts

Thursday, December 10th, 2009 | MISCELLANEOUS, Tips with 1 Comment

When typing documents, or making spreadsheets and presentations, I still prefer using keyboard shortcuts in formatting my documents.  Instead of grabbing the mouse, I find it faster to just execute the keyboard shortcuts.  I noticed these days how younger computer users have been very dependent with the mouse in trying to format a particular character, word, or even a whole paragraph.  For me, this is very time consuming.  I admit that the mouse can be used more efficiently than the keyboard at times, but I think keyboard shortcuts can be more efficient to use most of the time.  I would just like to share the following table of keyboard shortcuts as a guide for more efficient typing.  These shortcuts are compatible to Windows 7 and MS Office applications.
