Modifier Keys

24 Sep

The key to maximizing your “computer” work-life is to comprehend, to retain and to implement a knowledge of modifier keys so that:

  • You can accomplish your work tasks in a fraction of the time
  • You can streamline repetitive tasks

There are 4 modifier keys that you should learn or know:

Alt – This modifier key (along with a second key) will help you to activate all your menus and even use the new Windows 7 ribbon. I remember it this way (A LT (looks like “a list”)

Control – This key is a power house key (using the control key with arrows or with the Home / End key) is like charging your keyboard with the energizer bunny. (BAAAM!)

Shift – is the anchor key (something that is held down with weight). By using this key you can highlight text.

Windows –  is used with the Operating System not necessarily with the applications.
