• There is no doubt in saying that computers have become a very important part of daily life! If you are frequent computer user then you must know about the keyboard shortcut keys. 

    What Is a Keyboard Shortcut?

    In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a set of one or more keys that invoke a command in software or an operating system.

    They are typically an alternate means for invoking commands that would otherwise be accessible only through a menu, a mouse, or an aspect of the user interface. These shortcuts can expedite common operations by reducing input sequences to a few keystrokes.
