11 PC Keyboard Shortcuts to Enhance Productivity

What exactly are keyboard shortcuts? They are keys or combinations of keys that provide an alternative way to do something that you’d typically do with a mouse.

Compared to reaching for the mouse or navigating a menu, a single keyboard shortcut shaves a moment off your task. This might not seem like much, but add up all those saved moments over a week or a month, and you’re gaining a substantial chunk of time.

That’s why it’s important to know as many shortcuts as possible for your operating system. Try a keyboard command a few times, and you’ll find out just how useful it can be. Here are 11 of the most indispensable keyboard shortcuts for a Microsoft Windows computer.
