    Keyboard shortcuts

    Dear all,

    I am sure almost everyone here uses one or the other method of keyboard shortcuts, either it is to copy and paste or cut and paste or cut, copy and paste .

    The reason of creating this thread is to collect number of shortcuts which people around here uses.

    For example I use

    Ctrl+c - Copy
    Ctrl+v - Paste
    Ctrl+t - New Tab under browser
    Crtl+a - Select All
    Ctrl+z - Undo text
    Ctrl+y - Redo text

    [ I ] [ /i ] - Italic
    [code] [/ code] - Code
    [b ] [/b ] - Bold

    I think I'll let you type some more shortcuts now

    Hey, good idea!

    The only other one that I use that I can think of at the moment is

    Alt+tab to switch between windows.

    Well, that and I press ctrl while I click on something to open it in a new window.

    Oh ya you reminded me of Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the task manager

    The shortcuts I use most regularly are:

    FN+F6, F7 for controlling my screen brightness

    And of course the ever-handy CTRL+ALT+DEL.

    I also make much use of SPACE for scrolling, as well as HOME, PGUP, PGDN and END.

    It would be a good idea to explain what the shortcuts do as well, as one might not know what Ctrl+U etc does.

    Remember, too, that shortcuts are different for Macs and PCs.

    Does the link you got from me count?


    For a Mac that's alt 4.

    Mac does count .

    The idea was to collect and help users use shortcuts while working. It is something which helps users to do things more efficiently

    P.S. I would love to learn Mac Shortcuts
