These keyboard shortcuts will save you time.

Hands typing on a keyboard

From casual computer users to those of us who want to get the absolute most out of our work time, keyboard shortcuts can be a convenient way of streamlining your activity. If you type a lot like I do, your preference is probably to have both hands on the keyboard as often as possible. Windows 7 comes with some great WIN key combinations that can help quicken your pace.
