Do you always use shortcut keys on your PC? You know, ctrl+c, alt+tab, F5,etc. Or do you prefer the old-fashioned way? right click,etc. Hehehehehe. I prefer shortcuts coz it makes things faster. hehehehe *scolds self* Duh, that's why it's called "shortcuts",jj! Hehehehe. Just curious. 8)

Hi Super, I always use the straight forward way simply because I forget what the shortcuts are or never learned them. Is there a listing for all the shortcut keys and there function available online. Silly question right? Of course everything is on line if you can find it. I would love to have a list to use as a reference if you know of one. Thanks. Have a good day.

Hi! Here are the basics that i know: ctrl+c = copy ctrlt+v = paste ctrl+x = cut ctrl+f = find ctrl+g = get ctrl+d = format shft+F3 = lowercase/uppercase = titlecase/sentencecase alt+tab =cycle through windows hope this helps. Just the basics though. 8)

Thanks Super. I never knew you could use ctl+ f for find. I'm always looking for the find tab. And what exactly does ctl+g do? Get what? It's amazing that there are so many ways to do the same thing in windows. Microsoft is really awesome, isn't it? Have a great day my friend.

There are lots and lots of shortcut keys on your keyboard super_jj! As for me I usually create my own shortcut keys. For example, I use ALT+E for highlighting a portion of the document and ALT+S for the symbols. SHIFT+F3 will allow to toggle between the sentence case, all capital letters, and all small letters of the highlighted area. And ALT+TAB can always allow you to switch between windows. I have also assigned shortcuts keys to common symbols like I use ALT+o for the degree symbol and ALT+m for the Greek mu.

i'm a funny one because i use a combination of both i use the tab buttn constantly at work for flicking through my screens but not very much at home. i use ctrl c v etc all the time and i use the print scrn buttin and paint pretty much everyday for something or other. It all depends where i'm working and what i'm working on but i use a combination of both rather than one more than the other.
