    no, I don’t but I’m trying to use them. I type so slow that if shortcuts prove to help then a hug for you. Sure will copy and paste this in front of me.

    I used the D key for desktop on my old computer because I kept a shortcut for everything there, but now I use it when I save something to the desktop before sending it away.

    I had never used the E, I or U, but they will be handy. Thanks for cluing me in.
