Save time with these useful Windows shortcut keys
6 May 2022
Windows 10/11 includes plenty of keyboard shortcuts to make your end user experience easier.
Windows shortcut keys help you navigate around the desktop / laptop operating system quicker.
With the Windows operating system, keyboard shortcuts are a smarter way to navigate and perform actions using one or multiple key combos, which otherwise can take end users longer to click and complete the task with a mouse.
