Keyboard shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts help us save a lot of time, it may seem as if it only a few seconds here, and a few seconds there, but at the end of the year all those seconds could add up to a full days worth of work. Maybe not so exciting if some else is cutting your check, but if you are self employed you know the value of your time.

Most people know copy, cut, paste and print, but if not get used to those first.
