A. I'm glad to hear that you're finding the information I give you so useful, Heather! It's the reason I'm in this business, after all. And I'd love to help you learn this cool computer trick.
That other kid in your class is using what are called keyboard shortcuts. To perform a keyboard shortcut, you press two, three or sometimes four keyboard keys at the same time.
With just a few quick key presses, you can perform many common computer tasks that would require several mouse movements and clicks. Talk about a time-saver!
While there are hundreds of keyboard shortcuts you can use, there are five that I use nearly every day. In fact, every computer user should know these ones.
