Keyboard Shortcuts

keyboard shortcut is a set of one or more keys used in conjunction to invoke a operation that would otherwise be accessible through a menu or a button function located on a toolbar. Keyboard shortcuts are intended to reduce the time taken to complete common operations. Shortcut keys are commonly invoked by using the ALT, CTRL, SHIFT or Windows Key () in conjunction with a single key. The standard for a shortcut is listing the modifier key, a plus symbol, and the single character. For example, "CTRL+C" is telling you to press the CTRL key (continue to hold the CTRL key) and then press the C key.
