New blog launch from Zeigen: Windows keyboard shortcuts
I got my start after college as a trainer, teaching folks then-current programs like WordPerfect and Lotus 1-2-3. Even as recently as a few years ago I was teaching classes at the San Jose State University Professional Development Program.
I still like to teach occasionally. By popular demand, I held a one-hour course at TiVo on Windows keyboard shortcuts last week. Why that topic? I rarely use the mouse if I can help it — instead, I use the keyboard as much as possible. The keyboard is much faster, saves your wrists, and is more precise. A few of my co-workers, when they see my fingers fly across the keyboard, asked me to teach them how to do what I do.
The best way to learn to use the keyboard is to practice. Rather than try to memorize a big long list of shortcuts, it’s helpful to focus on just mastering one a day. So, to help people learn keyboard shortcuts, I’ve created a new blog at zeigen.com/shortcuts. Every weekday there will be a new keyboard shortcut. Please check it out!
