Keyboard Shortcuts Tips And Tricks

Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are keys or key combinations you can press on your computer’s keyboard to perform a variety of tasks.

चूँकि आपके दोनों हाथ keyboard पर बने रह सकते हैं,

इसलिए किसी कार्य को करने के लिए shortcut का उपयोग करना अक्सर mouse का उपयोग करने से तेज होता है।

Keyboard shortcuts are different for Windows and macOS computers. In this lesson, we’ll share some of the most common shortcuts for both versions.

Every time you reach out for it, you’re losing a tiny bit of focus and time. 

 And don’t we have our hands all over it anyways? There are a few cool keyboard tricks that can help you save time and make you more productive.
