Windows keyboard Shortcuts that you need to know by Kenyans247(1): Thu 17, December, 2020 11:07am
Windows may be designed for touchscreens, but thanks to a slew of Windows keyboard shortcuts it's easy to bypass touch and use a just keyboard and mouse. These shortcuts let you do things on your computer by using keys instead of clicking on drop down menus and can save you a bit of time and effort.

Here are some good ones to remember, along with several important carry-overs you may remember from earlier versions of Windows. These are the ones we believe are useful, of the dozens and dozens available, to the broadest range of users.
