Kristen Hewes - Hardware Technician
I just wanted to take a minute in this week's blog to give a list of some keyboard shortcuts. It may seem like basic stuff to technicians and computer users in general, but not everyone knows about them.
Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert
Copy the highlighted text or selected item.
Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert
Paste the text or object that's in the clipboard.
Ctrl + Z and Ctrl + Y
Undo any change. For example, if you cut text, pressing this will undo it. Pressing Ctrl + Y would redo the undo.
Ctrl + F
Open the Find in any program. This includes your Internet browser!
Alt + Tab or Alt + Esc
Quickly switch between open programs moving forward.
Press Ctrl + Tab to switch between tabs in a program.
Ctrl + Back space
Pressing Ctrl + Backspace will delete a full word at a time instead of a single character.
Ctrl + Left arrow / Right arrow
Move the cursor one word at a time instead of one character at a time.
Ctrl + Home / End
Move the cursor to the beginning or end of a document.
Ctrl + P
Print the page being viewed.
Page Up and Page Down
Pressing either the page up or page down key will move that page one page at a time in that direction.
That's all I can think of for now. I find a lot of these to be very useful and hope you will too.
