Why is this important?
This is important because it can help you to be faster, more productive and keep your focus when using your computer or when you’re doing work for your company.

1.) Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert
This will copy the highlighted area of text. If you want to cut instead of copy, use Ctrl + X.

2.) Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert 
This will paste the object or text that is in the clipboard. 

3.) Ctrl + Z or Ctrl + Y
For example if you copy or cut and paste, pressing Ctrl + Z will undo it. Ctrl + Y will redo any undo you’ve done. 

4.) Ctrl + F
This opens the find in any program. This includes your Internet browser to find text on the current page.

5.) Alt + Tab or Ctrl + Tab
This allows you to quickly move forward between open programs.
*Adding the Shift key to Alt + Tab or Ctrl + Tab will move backwards.*

6.) Ctrl + Backspace + Left or Right Arrow 
This allows you to delete one word at a time instead of a character at a time. 

7.) Ctrl + S  
While working on a document or other file, in almost any program, using this shortcut will save your file. 

8.) Ctrl + Home or Ctrl + End 
Ctrl + Home will bring the cursor to the beginning of a document whereas Ctrl + End will bring the cursor to the end of a document. 

9.) Ctrl +P
This opens up a print preview of the current document or page being viewed.

10.) Page Up, Space bar, and Page Down
Pressing either the page up or page down key will move that page one page at a time in that direction. When browsing the Internet, pressing the space bar also moves the page down one page at a time.
*Press the Shift key and space bar to go up one page at a time.*
