Keyboard shortcutsare single keys or a combination of keys pressed on the keyboard to perform a task that would typically require a mouse. Keyboard shortcuts are a time saver that with a bit of practice will make you a more efficient computer user.
Most keyboard shortcuts are universal on Windows computers, meaning that they can be used in a variety of applications. For example, the keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste can be used in a word processor program like Microsoft word and also in an internet browser program such as Google Chrome.
