Keyboard commands are shortcut keys that can be used to trigger certain actions on a computer. Some of these shortcut keys require you to press one button while others commands are done by pressing a combination of two or more buttons.

​Shortcut keys are quite helpful especially if you want to save time. Instead of going through menus you can use shortcut keys to carry out your command.

Short cut keys also come in pretty handy if your mouse has stopped working. Here are a few shortcut keys for some popular computer commands.

With just a little practice you will have them memorized in no time.
