So far we have reviewed some of the navigation shortcuts, which help us move around the document quickly. Now we are getting into the editing shortcuts. Editing shortcuts are the shortcuts which help us make edits quickly and efficiently without taking our hands off the keyboard. We’ve already reviewed CTRL+Delete and CTRL+Backspace, which delete entire words with one keystroke. Today, we are going to focus on four new shortcuts:
- Select Word – CTRL+SHIFT+Left or Right Arrow
- Cut – CTRL+X
- Copy – CTRL+C
For practice with these shortcuts, please open Exercise 10 on the Editing Fun tab. Remember, the navigation and editing shortcuts can be used together.
