Using keyboard shortcuts could save the average person eight days worth of work per year, so to save you some work hours, we’ve put together a list of common, handy shortcuts and tricks that every computer user should know. If you have a friend or family member who could use a lesson or refresher, send this post along.

  • CTRL: an abbreviation for Control, and it’s one of the main keys on your Windows PC that you use to activate keyboard shortcuts.
  • Command: If you have a Mac, you also have a Control key, but it’s called Command.

Easy, right? There are other keys you can use, too—Alt/Option, Shift, Fn (on a laptop). You might even mash a combination of multiple modifier keys to trigger actions. Welcome to the fun world of keyboard shortcuts. Now, let’s take a look at a few of the ones you’ll use most.
