Ctrl Key Shortcuts to Save You Time 

Today, we’re going to remind you about one of the most basic time-saving things you can use in your daily computing life. Shortcuts. In today’s post we’re going to remind you how handy Ctrl Key shortcuts can be — and why you should use them whenever you can. They will save you time. And what’s more basic than time. We either have too much of it, or not enough it…

OK ready? On to Ctrl Key Shortcuts!

Let’s say you’re reading a page on the Web and you’re looking for a particular word. Do you:

a.) Scan the page manually for the word?

b.) Use the browser’s search feature in the browser toolbar?

c.) Press Cntrl+F to open the page search dialog?

d.) None of the above.

The answer is C. If you’re looking for a word on a page in your web browser, word processer, text editor, PDF viewer (and many other programs) just press Ctrl+F to open the “Find” dialog. Type in the word(s) you’re looking for and press Enter. That’s it! Just remember F stands for Find. Sure, you can use the program’s search feature too, but why? The CTRL + F shortcut is faster and easier.

OK. If you’re on a page you want to print, do you search for “print” on the toolbar, or look for a printer icons, or just press Ctrl+P? Right! You press Ctrl+P to print the page. It’s the fastest way to print.

OK now… you’re using your browser and you want to open a new window? Do you just click the browser’s shortcut to open a new browser window? Nah, just press Ctrl+N. Same thing if you’re using an email program and you want to open a new email compose window. Ctrl + N and type your email.

If you’re working on a document and you want to save it, you can press CTRL+S instead of clicking ‘File’ ‘Save’. If you want “File”> “Save as” you’ll find that  Ctrl+S/ works in many applications.

If you want to view your browser’s history, with your browser open use the Ctrl key shortcup, Ctrl+H. And if you want to view a list of downloads, with your browser open press Ctrl+J.

Let’s review:

Ctrl+F = Find something on a page – in a browser, text editor, PDF editor, ebook, etc. To remember this easily, think F = FIND.

Ctrl+P = Print the document you have open. Whether it’s a web page, a Word doc, PDF file, text file, etc. Think P = PRINT.

Ctrl+N = Opens new window in the program that’s running. Think N = NEW.

Ctrl+S = Saves the document you’re working on. Think S = SAVE.

Ctrl+H = Shows your browser’s history. Think H = History

Ctrl+J = Shows a list of downloads in your browser. Think J= ? I give up! J=Downloads! Junk?

And let us not fail to mention these basic Ctrl Key shortcuts:

Ctrl+A = Select All

Ctrl+C = Copy

Ctrl+V = Paste

Ctrl+Z = Restores deleted files instantly when used immediately after deleting a file.
