Keyboard Shortcuts

We all love taking shortcuts in life, don’t we? However, we are also advised not to take shortcuts since they are the symbol of procrastination. But, in today’s fast-paced society where everything has to be done fast enough so that we don’t lag behind others. For example, fast food or packaged food was invented to make our lives fast so that we don’t waste the time preparing for food and spend it instead on other productive things. In the same way, those of us who work in a digital environment where we have to spend 1/3rd of our daily life in front of a computer or a laptop, understand the value of digital shortcuts.

Why do we need shortcuts?

Although we can’t assure that shortcuts work in a subjective environment where one has to make a decision based on different criteria, but what we can assure is that shortcuts do help make objective things easier and efficient in digital life.

Here is a list of some more combinations that could help make your lives easier on a daily basis.
