The new Windows is full of new features, some of its most interesting features also include their own keyboard shortcuts.

Windows has always had many useful keyboard shortcuts that most people do not fail, you may be one of those who believe it is too complicated learning you shortcuts to do things you can do faster with your mouse , the reality is that you are wrong.

First, the keyboard shortcuts are incredibly easy to remember because the key combinations make sense of being and are themselves their own mnemonics for the user to learn easily. And second, if you start using them, once you get used to it, you do a whole 150% faster than moving your mouse and making several clicks . If you do not believe me, try it at least a couple of times.
