Shortcut Keys

This has been contributed by Sachin Kumar Sharma, an employee of MindTree.

Most of the time, interaction on the internet is with the mouse. We probably use the keyboard only when we are typing in a particular URL or entering a user name and password.

There are dozens of keyboard shortcuts we can utilize on our browser to invoke functions or features.

If you know the shortcut keys, you are well on your way to working faster. But, that sometimes isn’t the best solution as it is either hard to find or we don’t know that it exists.

Remembering Them All?
There have been improvements in design where Microsoft has now introduced the ‘Ribbon’ look and feel where shortcut keys are easier to remember. This could be better without the cluttered interface; a solution nonetheless.
