List of keyboard shortcuts used in Windows XP

by admin

I wonder if the visitors to the hubra often use "hotkeys"?
Microsoft has frankly "accustomed" people to use the mouse, but it’s not always correct and effective.
The loss of time to open this or that object is much higher than using the "hotkeys".
Here is a more extended list from an off.source.
