Windows XP - Keyboard Shortcuts - Part III

                                          



                           Most pc users are accustomed to using their mouse for most actions they do on the computer. However, there is a much more powerful and easier way to navigate; this is the Windows keyboard shortcuts. Most of us are aware of the copy Ctrl+C, paste Ctrl+V and Ctrl+Alt+Delete (task manager), but there are many more. Knowing quite a few of these can be very helpful in the event your mouse has stopped working.

                         Keyboard shortcuts help you save time by allowing you to never take your hands off the keyboard to use the mouse. You'll need a Standard 101/102-Key or Natural PS/2 Keyboard to use the shortcuts.
