Speed Your Work with Keyboard Shortcuts
Working on a laptop without a mouse can sometimes be difficult, particularly the Thinkpads we are using with only the little red button with which to navigate. Knowing some keyboard shortcuts can make your work easier and faster. Here are some of the more common ones you might find helpful:
SWITCH BETWEEN OPEN ITEMS: alt+tab
MOVE CURSOR TO FRONT OF NEXT WORD: ctrl+--> (right arrow)
MOVE CURSOR TO FRONT OF PREVIOUS WORD: ctrl+<--
SELECT EVERYTHING: ctrl+a
MOVE TO THE NEXT ITEM ON A WEB PAGE: tab
See a complete list of Windows keyboard shortcuts.
Most applications also have their own keyboard shorts. These are often shown to the right of menu item in the drop-down menus.
