What are keyboard shortcuts?

Keyboard shortcuts are actions that you can perform on your computer or laptop. It is when you use a combination of keys to perform a task in a software program that you’re using.

Keyboard shortcuts allow you to make faster changes and actions rather than using a more manual approach. 

One of the most common keyboard shortcuts used across many computer programs is the “Copy” and “Paste”  keyboard shortcuts.

Copy = Ctrl or ⌘ + C

Paste = Ctrl or ⌘ + V

By pressing a key or combination of keys, you can quickly do things that would normally require multiple clicks. These shortcuts can save you time when adjusting settings or checking your reports.
