I won’t start using shortcuts

Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are key combinations that allow you to perform a function on your computer without having to use the mouse. The addition quickly is because using this key combination is often faster than performing the corresponding mouse function. Each program often has its own combination of keys that are used as shortcuts. This does not make it easier for the user and often even scares users off. In addition, Windows and Apple do not have the same key combinations. In spite of this, it is worthwhile to delve into, though it is a number of shortcut combination of programs that you often use.

Benefit shortcuts

  • It works faster than a computer mouse (saving time)
  • Fewer actions required, so more efficiently
  • Less concentration (effort) is required (Mouse must be “search” and exactly “aim” in the menu)
  • Ergonomically it is also better because you use your mouse arm less one-sided
  • Has a preventive effect on RSI and can promote recovery through less stress
  • By using shortcut keys you develop your motor memory (with this you also remember pin codes) :-).

How do you discover the shortcut keys

They are often indicated as an alternative to the functions in the menu. Another option is to enter “Keyboard shortcuts” in Help in the program and you will get a list of shortcuts for the program in question. So do you want to save time, sit at the computer healthier and train your memory? Then learn some shortcuts for the programs that you use the most.

Shortcuts, I don’t think so

Keyboard shortcuts are key combinations that you can run on your computer without having to use the mouse to perform a function. The addition short is because it takes less time to use the shortcut keys then using the mouse to do the same function in any program. Each program has its own combination of  keys that are often used as shortcuts. This makes it less easy for the user, and often even discourage people in using them. In addition, Windows and Apple use different key combinations, which makes that users of both system have to remember a lot more short keys. Despite this, it is worthwhile to delve into all the several keyboard shortcuts combination.

Advantage shortcuts

  • It works faster than using your mouse (time saving)
  • Fewer steps needed so it’s efficient
  • There is less concentration (effort) required (With a mouse you need to ‘search’ and ‘point’ exactly in the menu)
  • Ergonomically it is better because you use your mouse arm less in repetitive way on the same mouse motion
  • Shortcut keys are preventive against RSI and can help prevent RSI from becoming worse
  • By using shortcuts you train your memory in remembering (this can be useful in remembering PINnumber) :-).

How do you discover shortcuts

Often they are indicated by the functions in the menu when using the menu as an alternative. Another option is to use the Help section of the program. Look for ‘Keyboard shortcuts’ and then you get a list of keyboard shortcuts for the corresponding program. Now you know why some people use keyboard shortcuts:

  • To save time
  • To have a healthier sit behind their computer
  • And to train there memory in remembering them.

So if you think those three things are handy, maybe you should start learning some keyboard shortkeys.
