  • Top 10 keyboard shortcuts everyone should know

    Using keyboard shortcuts can greatly increase your productivity, reduce repetitive strain, and help keep you focused. For example, to copy text, you can highlight text and press the Ctrl + C shortcut. The shortcut is faster than moving your hands from the keyboard, highlighting with the mouse, choosing copy from the file menu, and then returning to the keyboard.

    Below are the top 10 keyboard shortcuts we recommend everyone memorize and use.

    Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert and Ctrl + X

    Both Ctrl + C and Ctrl + Insert will copy highlighted text or a selected item. If you want to cut an item instead of copying it, press Ctrl + X. This action removes the text or item and stores it in the clipboard for you, rather than just copying it to the clipboard while leaving the original behind.

    Apple computer users can substitute the Ctrl key for the command (cmd) key on their computers. For example, pressing Cmd + C copies highlighted text.
    Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert

    Both the Ctrl + V and Shift + Insert will paste the text or object that's stored in the clipboard.

    On Apple computers, use Cmd + V instead.

    Ctrl + Z and Ctrl + Y

    Pressing Ctrl + Z will undo any change. For example, if you cut text, pressing this key combination will undo the cut. These shortcuts can also be pressed multiple times to undo or redo multiple changes. Pressing Ctrl + Y would redo the undo.

    On Apple computers, use Cmd + Z and Cmd + Y to undo and redo.

    Ctrl + F

    Pressing Ctrl + F opens the Find field, which allows you to search the text currently displayed in any program that supports it. For example, Ctrl + F can be used in your Internet browser to find text on the current page. Press Ctrl + F now to open the Find in your browser and search for "shortcut" to display each time shortcut is mentioned on this page.

    Alt + Tab or Ctrl + Tab

    Pressing Alt + Tab switches between open programs moving forward. For example, if you have your browser window open and other programs running in the background press and hold Alt and then press the tab key to cycle through each open program.

    On Apple computers instead of using the Alt key use the Command (Cmd) key. For Example, Cmd + Tab to switch between open programs.

    Ctrl + Back space and Ctrl + Left or Right arrow

    Note: This is for PC users only and does not work on Apple computers

    Pressing Ctrl + Backspace will delete a full word at a time instead of a single character.

    Holding down the Ctrl key while pressing the left or right arrow will move the cursor one word at a time instead of one character at a time.

    Ctrl + S
    While working on a document or other file in almost every program, pressing Ctrl + S saves that file. Use this shortcut key frequently if you're working on anything important in case an error happens, you lose power, or any other issues that could cause you to any work since the last save.

    On Apple computers, use Cmd + S to save a file.
    Ctrl + Home or Ctrl + End

    Ctrl + Home will move the cursor to the beginning of the document, and Ctrl + End will move the cursor to the end of a document. These shortcuts work with most documents, as well as web pages.

    On Apple computers use Command and the Cmd and the up arrow to get to the beginning of a document or text or Cmd and the down arrow to get to the end of a document or text.
    Ctrl + P

    Control + P is used to open a print preview of the page or document currently being viewed. For example, press Ctrl + P now to view a print preview of this page.

    On Apple computers use Cmd + P to open the print preview.
    Page Up, Spacebar, and Page Down

    As you may have guessed, pressing either the page up or page down key will move to the next or previous page. When browsing the Internet, pressing the spacebar moves the scrollbar down a page. Similarly, Shift + spacebar moves the scrollbar up one page.

  • How to Add a Wireless or Network Printer in Windows 10

    Manage Printers in Windows 10

    To get to the Control Panel printer manager, click on Devices and Printers

    wifi_router

    You’ll see a list of all your printers and other devices that may be on the network. The other way is to click on Start, then Settings and then click on Devices.

    wireless_printer

    There’s really no reason for there to be two ways to do this, but that’s just how it is currently in Windows 10. You can pick either way and you’ll get all the same options, so it doesn’t really matter.

    Adding a Printer in Windows 10

    Now let’s get into the actual steps for adding a printer to Windows 10. In this article, we are assuming that you have connected your printer to either the wireless network or wired network. As long as your router is giving out IP addresses automatically using DHCP, getting your printer connected to the network should be straight-forward.

    For wireless printers, just refer to the instructions on how to configure the printer with the wireless network settings. Most new wireless printers allow you to do this on the on-screen display of the printer, but some older wireless printers require you to connect the printer directly to a computer first, configure the wireless settings and then disconnect it.

    Once the printer is connected, go ahead and click on Add a printer in the Devices and Printers dialog on your PC.
