Most Useful Top 10 keyboard ShortcutsJuly 5, 2017

Using keyboard shortcuts can substantially increase your productivity, lessen repetitive stress, and help maintain you focused. For instance, to copy text, you can highlight textual content and press the Ctrl+C shortcut. The shortcut is quicker than moving your hands from the keyboard, highlighting with the mouse, choosing copy from the file menu, and then returning to the keyboard.
Below are the top 10 keyboard shortcuts we recommend everyone memorize and use.

1.Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert
Both Ctrl + C and Ctrl + Insert will copy the highlighted text or selected item. If you want to cut instead of copy press Ctrl + X.

2.Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert
Both the Ctrl + V and Shift + Insert will paste the text or object that’s in the clipboard.

3.Ctrl + Z and Ctrl + Y
Pressing Ctrl+Z will undo any change. For example, if you cut text, pressing this key combination will undo the cut. These shortcuts can also be pressed multiple times to undo or redo multiple changes. Pressing Ctrl+Y would redo the undo.
On Apple computers, use Cmd+Z and Cmd+Y to undo and redo.

4.Ctrl + Back space and Ctrl + Left or Right arrow
Pressing Ctrl + Backspace will delete a complete word at a time in preference to a single character.
Holding down the Ctrl key at the same time as pressing the left or right arrow will flow the cursor one word at a time instead of one character at a time. If you wanted to highlight one word at a time, you can hold down Ctrl + Shift after which press the left or right arrowkey to move one word at a time in that route while highlighting each word.

5.Alt + Tab or Ctrl + Tab
Pressing Alt+Tab switches among open programs transferring forward. For example, if you have your browser window open and different programs running inside the background press and hold Alt and then press the tab key to cycle via every open program.
