Default Keyboard Shortcuts

Sponsored Links
It came to my attention today that not everyone is aware of the many keyboard shortcuts that can make life easier on sweeping. I'm starting this thread to help. Once I get back to my office on monday, I'll collect some of the documents I have developed for my users that you all may find helpful. But, for starters...

F5 = Refresh

That's right, don't kill your mouse or your finger hitting the refresh icon. Use your keyboard. It's the same function.

In a form:
Tab = next cell
Shift + Tab = previous cell
Space (on a selected radial button) = selects the button

You too, can type your way faster through a form that sometimes using a mouse.

Feel free to add any keyboard shortcuts. You never know what might seem like common knowledge to you that not everyone is aware of.

Thanks Eva! I need all the shortcuts I can get, mouse arm gets tired! Here's a couple more.

Ctr l+W to close a window or browser tab (doesn't work on all sites)
Alt + left scroll arrow to go back to previous page

Thanks Ladies I know I don't know half of whats out there. Wondering if you could edit them all to your first post as they come in so as to make it easier to see new ones.
Thanks again, Great idea.

Thanks for the radial button one. I hate those

Yes, we'll condense it all after the weekend.

Backspace will also take you back if not in a form field. But I've got windows, office, outlook and some photoshop shortcuts. I'm kind of lazy. When I can type over 100wpm, I don't like to reach for the keyboard if I can just hit some keys.

Just wait until the shift+ctrl+ shortcuts... Or alt characters.
