Keyboard Shortcuts Anyone?

Keyboard shortcuts are combinations of two or more keys that, when pressed, can be used to perform a task that would typically require a mouse or other pointing device. Keyboard shortcuts can make it easier to interact with your computer, saving you time and effort as you work with Windows and other programs.

Most programs also provide accelerator keys that can make it easier to work with menus and other commands. Check the menus of programs for accelerator keys. If a letter is underlined in a menu, that usually means that pressing the Alt key in combination with the underlined key will have the same effect as clicking that menu item.

Pressing the Alt key in some programs, such as Paint and WordPad, shows commands that are labeled with additional keys that you can press to use them.

An example of a keyboard shortcut would be pressing the "Windows Key" + r.  The will open the "run" dialog box.  The same as using your mouse to click on "start" then "Run" program.  There are many keyboard shortcuts in Windows.  Here is a link to Microsoft’s page that list some of the more common shortcuts along with the full list although this link is for Windows 7, alot of the shortcuts will also work in other version of Windows.
