There is a way to increase your productivity and free up some of your time – by using keyboard shortcuts!
What are Keyboard Shortcuts?
Keyboard shortcuts are simply keystrokes that can be used in place of mouse clicks to perform common tasks. For example, instead of clicking the File menu and then selecting Save, you can press the Ctrl+S keys on your keyboard to save your work. Using keyboard shortcuts can help you work faster and more efficiently.
How to Use Keyboard Shortcuts?
There are two ways to use keyboard shortcuts: by memorising them or by using a cheat sheet. If you want to memorize them, the best way to do so is by practicing them regularly until they become second nature. You can also create a cheat sheet with all the shortcuts that you need and keep it handy so that you can refer to it when needed. Either way, using keyboard shortcuts will help you work faster and be more productive.
