I'm all for shortcuts. Help me to get somewhere or do something more quickly and I am a happy Bumble. All that saved time lets me savor the extra moments doing the things I truly enjoy.
Which leads me to my blogging tip post for today. The following information may be elementary to you - old hat tricks that you know like the back of your speedy typing hand. But I am sure there are folks out there who have no idea. Or some who will appreciate the handy reminder.
What follows are a handful of keyboard shortcuts that I find most useful in my day to day typing - whether at work or in the blogosphere. I have no idea if these work in the world of Mac - probably unlikely. But in the Windows system, they do. Hold these keys down simultaneously and test them out for yourself.
COPY = Control + C
CUT = Control + X
PASTE = Control +V
PHOTO ROTATE CLOCKWISE = Control + Period
PHOTO ROTATE COUNTER CLOCKWISE = Control + Comma
REDO = Control + Y
REFRESH SCREEN = F5 Key
RENAME = F2 Key
SELECT ALL = Control + A
SELECT TEXT = Shift + Arrow Up or Arrow Down or Arrow Left or Arrow Right
START MENU = Control + Escape (or just Windows Logo Key)
TOGGLE BETWEEN OPEN WINDOWS = Control + Alt + Tab, then arrow to the one you want
UNDO = Control + Z
Do you have any favorite shortcut keys?
