Save time with Windows keyboard shortcut keys – Part 1

Many times we need to use the same command on a computer or a keyboard again and again. Each time, carrying out that certain command eats up a lot of time if one does it with the help of a mouse. For example, pointing the mouse button to the ‘Save’ button on the screen or any command for that matter can take a lot of time and energy.

It can even disturb your flow of actions and can derail your thinking process. So, the best way out is to use the keyboard shortcuts. They save your time to an unprecedented amount and your fingers can work on the keyboard just like the way you use it for typing. So, everything remains in the process and saves your time as well.
