Part I: Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are the easiest way to do things faster! Because both of your hands can remain on the keyboard, using a shortcut to perform a task is often faster than using a mouse. Once you learn these shortcuts you can use many of them across a variety of applications.

 

In this class we will focus on those shortcuts which work in most word processors, email programs, Facebook, blogs, etc. By utilizing the same shortcuts across multiple programs, your office efficiency will increase dramatically.
