The 3 Basic Keyboard Shortcuts You Need to Use

The 3 basic keyboard shortcuts you need to use

Question: I’ve heard about keyboard shortcuts and I’ve used a few once in awhile but I always forget what they are.  Can you tell me the best ones to use?

Keyboard shortcuts can save you hours of work.  If you use a computer often, at your job or in your personal life, you need to be using shortcuts.

The goal with these shortcuts is to make them a habit. Memorize each one so you can use them without thinking. That takes some time and practice but it will be worth it.  That’s why I will only focus on three shortcuts at a time. Below are my top three and I’ll be posting more every few months.  Learn these and then you’ll be ready for more!

A few notes:

  • These shortcuts are generally universal and work in almost every program.
  • If you’re on a Mac computer you’ll hit the Command key, which looks like this: ⌘, instead of the “CTRL” key.
THE SHORTCUTS:

SAVE
CTRL+S

You can save by hitting “CTRL” and the letter “S” at the same time.

COPY
CTRL+C

You can copy anything by highlighting the text or image and then hitting “CTRL” and the letter “C” at the same time.

PASTE
CTRL+V

You can paste what you just copied by hitting “CTRL” and the letter “V” at the same time.
