Windows Keyboard Shortcuts

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

Where can I find a list of all the “control/keyboard key” shortcuts. My friend has a Mac and uses them all the time, but I wasn’t sure if they would work on my Acer PC.

Thank you so much for all the knowledge you share with those of us who don’t have that computer know-how!

Dear Deb,

I love keyboard shortcuts, they make my life so much easier. When I am typing, a keyboard shortcut saves me time since I can keep my hands on the keyboard instead of reaching for the mouse each time I want to copy, paste, or other things.

Microsoft has a whole page of shortcuts on their site at:

Here are just a few to get you started:

CTRL+C: Copy
CTRL+V: Paste
CTRL+Z: Undo
CTRL+B: Bold
CTRL+U: Underline
CTRL+I: Italic



It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
